I am a 48 year old female who was just diagnosed last week with a 6mm renal tumor.
I am scheduled to have open surgery for a partial neph on Sept. 18.
The major complication is that I only have the one kidney as I had the other one removed in 2006 due to a blockage that ruined the kidney. I also have stage 3 Chronic Kidney disease.
I am scared and super emotional. At this point I am kind of still in shock and stunned I guess.
The doctor thinks that it is cancerous and feels that once it is removed that I should be ok.
I guess I don't really know what questions I have, just reading and absorbing.
Thanks for listening.
