I am 6 months post surgery from my second surgery. I was told after my first open partial nephrectomy that the complex cyst was benign. I recovered for 8 weeks then had laproscopic partial nephrectomy on my left kidney to remove a tumor. It came back benign also. I was told before both surgeries that I had a 98% chance of cancer. While I am very happy and blessed to have that outcome I wonder why I wasn't given better odds. I had no hope for about 4 months. This changed so much in my life and in my family's life.
