I have a small 1.5 cm in the upper left pole of the kidney, the urologist said that he is more than 85% positive that it is RCC. YES, I know it is fully treatable with surgery. I am not ready to jump off a brige or have a breakdown. I do have a normal amount of anxiety related to the C word and major surgery.
I know so many have it worse than I do, and I find it difficcult to ask questions bc so many have it worse.
Has anyone had an open partial? I have to have it open bc I have had numerous laprascopic surgerys, and I have a severe problem with adhesions. Anyone have part of the rib removed?
I had the option of cryo or surgery. I am not interested in cryo (I want it out).
Thanks for any input. I am wondering about recovery.
