I was lifting something heavy at work and bam! Tremendous pain in my back followed. I went home and could not stand up. Never felt anything like it before. Like I had been shot in my lower back right side. Dr. sent me for and MRI and the rest is history. He said I am very lucky he found a tumor on my right kidney. I said, gee thanks, but I dont feel lucky. CT exam followed and Da Vinci surgery to remove a malignant 2.5 cm tumor 6 mo ago. Important, if you are getting this surgery get yourself a lazyboy chair. Getting up after laying down is an undertaking. Its weird because for two years, I have felt there was something wrong with me. I felt like I had a mild case of lock-jaw, I had irregular heart beat, dizzyness, swelling. I had an absess root that suddenly got really bad and had to be treated but seemed like it was never really fixed. Since my surgery I am feeling better, I still feel a little weak sometimes and now and then I get a pain near one of my scars. I dont think much of it because after all I had seven holes punched in my stomach. Surely there is some more healing taking place. CT scan next week. Pray.
