Hello, I hope im in the right place. I just had a upper pole partical nephrectomy on my left kidney on May 10,2012. I dont know the size or stage but the surgan said it was the size of a golf ball. I also have a cyst on he same kidney and one on the right also, they say they look like just fluid filled and common. Im in recovery from the surgry and wondering how long this is gona take to get back to normal. I caint seem to get ride of the soreness and still have some stomach pains,its very depressing. I have many questions and concerns. I tell myself it was just a small thing and it will be over soon, but that word CANCER it aweful. Do I count myself as a cancer survivor or am i going to far? Any way i have been reading some posts on here and feel like i can get alot of answers and support.
