I am from Portland Dorset UK. My name is Michelle. I am 52.
I was diagnosed 6 weeks ago with a 6cm tumor on my left kidney, found by accident during a routine test for something else.
I had the kidney removed 2 weeks ago. Not as bad as I thought it would be. I had good care and came home after 5 days.
My pathology results are Grade 1/2 Stage 3a with clear margins. They Adrenal Gland and Lymph were clear but I had a small spread into the venal vien which is why they said 3a. No further treatment at this time with 6 monthly follow ups. I asked my prognosis and the doctor said that they comment more on that as to how well i do with my six monthly checks etc.
I would welcome any thoughts/advice/help to keep healthy/positive etc.
Thank you. Michelle :)
