I'm somewhat new here joined in December but this is my first post. My husband had a partial neph February 6, 2013 his tumor was at stage 1 size was 3.3. The mass was located on the upper part of his right kidney on the outer layer. They had to go behind his liver to remove it. My question is should we be worried because the mass was on the outside of the kidney rather than the inside? Is the likelihood of it spreading much greater due to is location? I tried to ask this question during his admission only to hear that he was "cured" in response. I have been worried sick over this and have spent hours and hours doing research. Another issue we are dealing with is controlling his pain and the leaking. His was given a Rx s for Ultram which did NOTHING for his pain at this point I just dont know where to turn. I have never seen my husband in this type of pain it just breaks my heart. He does what he can around the house for the most part he walks daily and has done well with the new diet. Well I guess that's enough rambling on my part. I'm so glad that I found this forum it has been a blessing.
