Hello everyone, I had my 6 month CT scan yesterday with and without contrast, results today.
I had a partial nephrectomy (3.9 x 2.5 cm, chromophobe grade 2) 6 months ago. The scan results indicate "small fluid density collection is noted with no residual enhancing mass, or evidence of metastatic disease."
My urologist requested an office visit in 6 months and another CT scan in 12 months. He said if I could have a CT scan in 6 months but did not recomend it. He was not concerned with the fluid. It was small, but I'm unsure of actual size.
The fluid is in the area where they took the kidney wedge out.
So, did I get good news, or not? I think I got good news but the fluid worries me. Does anyone have any experience with this? If so please comment.
Thanks a bunch in advace!!
