I am now a survivor from this terrible cancer. Thank you all for all the support and prayers, They were heard & answered. I had a 3.4 cm. cancerous tumor on my lower left back side of my kidney, They went through my back. I had four holes, I had the di vinchi robotic operation done at the VA hospital in long beach CA on friday May 31st, I spent 5 days in the hospital, 3 were in the ICU. I was released last night and it felt so good to finally come home and sleep in my own bed again. It"s the little things that matter a whole lot. The first 3 days was morphine every 3 hours, Then finally they removed the thing so I could pee on my own, Then slowly started to eat solid foods again, My stomach kept rumbling, So being able to go to the bathroom, eat, and walk, were big steps for me. I go pretty slow right now, but every day things are getting better !
