My kidney cancer was found do to CT at the ER for unrelated problem, MRI confirmed the same. My PCP sent me for a second opinion (didn't like the second opinion) cancer less than 2 cm on the outside of the kidney not in (which I hear is better). The are doing partial in two weeks just seems like its taking forever especially since I know the cancer is in me and I want it out yesterday, my surgery is scheduled for 12/2 and will be done via the Davinci robot. Had gallbladder and hysterectomy 4 years ago so I know the road to recovery can be rough. Still really nervous and hope that it hasn't spread. Had the MRI and MRI of lower spine do to numbness in left leg, stomach and back, they don't think the two are related, but happy that they did find it early and with the grace of god it will be in my past in a few short weeks.
