Recently had the DaVinci Partial done to the left lower kidney. Never actually believed that because of the stat of the 2 to 3 cm tumor usually being 70% malignant pre-op, that I would have cancer. No one in my entire family history ever had cancer. Why would I be the ultimate unlucky loser. Turns out I was for no reason. I was told it was a 3 cm T1a F2, whatever the hell the f2 means the surgeon was too busy to explain as you feel like a piece of meat on a cutting board these days, so many patients so little time. The feeling of being rushed makes you forget what you wanted to ask. I wanted to ask how they remove this scary mass cleanly without any molecules brushing off elsewhere as the robot extracts it, totally forgot. Anyway he said I have a 98 to 99% chance of being clean now and at 53 should live a normal finish. Scan in 6 months, etc. etc. While I was not that happy inside, I don't show it. The recovery was very quick and never had symptoms, Its going to be a pain wondering if I'm the 2% in 6 months, as luck is not on my side recently, especially with the stock market wiping me out, Remember all the Wallstreet experts calling for world oil and energy shortages, clueless. Anyway, its been an eye opener past 2 months, physically its easy but the other part is tough sometimes. Good luck everyone else. Guess I\ll try to eat more veggies, but will still never touch a tomato.
