I had a partial nephrectomy for renal clear cell carcinoma, 2.4cm fuhrmann grade 2, 2/15/11. I am seeing oncologist Monday and am developing a list of questions for the appointment. I had uterine cancer surgery 10 weeks prior to kidney surgery. My health is compromised by chronic fatique and stress.
My brother just died from liver cancer and my other brother is stage 4 colon cancer (9 years on chemo) and I am the 7th of my birth family of 7 to have cancer. I want to be a strong advocate for myself and am fearful about kidney cancer prognosis. I have other stressors in my life and working on ways to find balance, eat healthy etc.
I missed a scan August 2012 because the person who was supposed to set it up left UCSF.
I am trying to develop a list of questions for the Dr. ie; frequency of scans, other tests, etc???? I am curious about the UISS
