Today I had my first follow up post surgery. The grade of the RCC was one and two. Clear margins, all of the tumor was removed from the kidney. The kidney is functioning better then it was before surgery! Before the cretin? not sure if that is the right term he used, was .60, day after surgery .69, now it is .55. We caught it so early that I will be able to live a normal healthy life. Since I am 28 I have a 6% chance it will come back to the same or other kidney. Will be doing yearly ultrasounds, and ct scans every 5-10 years. I am going to shot for the 5 years on that.
I cant even describe the feelings I am having right now. I am happy and excited and feel like an act of god or miracle has just saved my life. The way things played out it was a miracle they found it. There is a reason I was put on this earth and a reason I lived. Now I have to find the reason and make this the best life ever!
