My mom had her surgery by robot last Thursday. It was rough as mom is 79 years old. Does anyone know what RCC Expansile means? I know they removed the kidney and two lymph nodes. One of the nodes was positive the other negative. They graded her stage 3 furman grade 4. I don't have the complete report as of yet. Does anyone know what "renal Vein Margin" means?

Thanks to all who can help.

Sorry, this is too technical for me and probably most of us here. However, I feel for your mom. I thought being 63 and having surgery was rough. But 79? God bless her. I pray all will be well.
Regards,
Mike
