My husband, Pat thought he had kidney stones. Was passing alot of blood and stuff. Waited to get checked out by his primary care physician. Sent him to get a CT scan. Then we found out the news. Kidney cancer.....I lost it. Went the same day to see our OC. He is awesome. Dr. Kasbari. We then proceeded to get 9 pints of blood and then waited and waited to get a bed at Duke. Finally got in for surgery. 6 hous later found out he was recovering well. He is on his third cycle of Sutent and doing great. Next CT is on Wednesday. Back to Duke. We are very thankful that it is only 1 hour and 30 minutes away. Our surgeon at Duke said his tumor was the size of a foootball. Dr. Inman is a great surgeuon. We have pictures.....thanks to the surgeon. He had to cut him straight down his belly to move his ribs. Had his spleen taken out too. Please keep us in your thoughts and prayers that the next CT will show good news.
