Wow, I got fabulous news. For six months I have been told I probably have kidney cancer, 95% certainty. Underwent a partial right nephrectomy six weeks ago and a very tough recuperation. Yesterday was my six week check up and the path report. I felt sick. After waiting forty five minutes, he finally called me in, I sat down and he started laughing. He said, not cancer. I had an oncocytoma. I was stunned. It is hard to process, after six months of having this horrible thing over my head, it is gone. Wow. Ssomeone has to be in the five percent and this time it was me. I got very very lucky and even though I have to do the same follow up, I am not a cancer patient. This place has been supportive and comforting and educational. I wish all of you smooth sailing, good scans and pain free days. Your stories, attitudes and compassion for others have been inspirational to me and I thank you.
