Last week, i had an admominal ct scan to run out appendicitis. In the scan, they saw a 6 cm mass on my kidney. I went to see my dr, who sent me to a urologist. I am lucky: the cancer will be cured once the tumor is gone. It does not seem to have spread. The surgery has not been scheduled, but it will be soon.
I am lucky. It was caught before it spread, and it is cured by just the surgery. I am terrified. And, for my daughter and wife, I need to be strong. It would be bad for my 10 yo to see how scared I am.
I admit I am feeling sorry for myself, but then feel guilty about that: in a few months I will be cured, just with only one kidney. Others are not so lucky.
The scariest part for me is I have nothing to do right now...
