Very interesting reading on other posts, thankyou all for your input as it does help so much to read other stories.
I also have just been diagnosed with 5+cm tumor in my right Kidney, found accidently. I am a male, just turned 49, reasonable fitness and as mentioned in many posts, expecting the arrival of my first grandchild in Feb.
My question is that after numerous tests and specialist appointments (over 1 month) I now face the possibility of going onto a waiting list which can be up to 2 months until surgery. This is making me extremely nervous and anxious of the thought of the wait. Is this a normal procedure? I have another appointment in 5 days and have been advised to go privately and get the surgery preformed ASAP (+/-$5000)
Any tips I can tell the Urogist Spec. to hopefully fasttrack the operation?
And what questions should I ask the doctors about the Surgery.
You all have probably been asked the same questions 1000 times over, but realy appreciate your input.
Thanks and good health all,
