I am new to this board. My beautiful wife (41) of 21 years endured a fairly painful kidney stone a couple of months ago. It was finally broken up and she was able to resume normal activity. Upon a further follow-up, ultrasounds were done on both of her kidneys to make sure no further stones were detected. During the ultrasound a mass was found and the urologist ordered a CT scan.
We received the results of the CT scan on Friday and were pretty shocked to find out that it is a suspected malignant tumor approximately 3cm x 3cm. She has had no symptoms like blood in her urine or back pains, so we are hoping this is a blessing in disguise and we can get it early. The urologist scheduled a follow-up for July 17th and said that the affected kidney will need to be partially or fully removed.
Needless to say that the past couple of days have been a real roller-coaster ride. We have four children ages 6-13 and are in the prime of our lives. We both have faith and understand that the Lord can take us at anytime, but phew, what a kick to the pants this has been.
Anyhow, we will add everyone on this board to our prayers and would appreciate the same.
I will let you know how things go once we meet with the surgeon on the 17th.
