Well, I finally got a call back from the doctor with the results of the MRI. The results came back indicating that it is cancer and not just a cyst. His suggestion due to my age (41) and the fact that the cancer is small and can be easily removed is to get it taken out. So I will be going in for a robotic partial nephrectomy but probably no sooner than December when I will have more sick days to use to recover (small employer so no FMLA), and my wife will have time off for the shut down of her facility and will be able to take care of me. In the mean time I am working on losing weight to make surgery easier and recovery faster and to make life better. I have a 5k scheduled for June and one ffor July. Have to schedule another CT scan for August to monitor the tumor for signs of growth. All in all things are going really well right now.
Hope all is going well for everyone.
