Saw the Urologist today. It was the one month post op check.
I had my left kidney out on Sept. 6.
I had a pet scan 2 weeks ago. I have a 1-1/2 cm nodule in one of my lungs.
The doc says that the scan shows no cancer activity but, he says, the nodule should come out.
I guess this is being discussed by a tumor board (of doctors) next week. He says that I am young (54 years old), and that he feels confident this surgery will be approved.
My lymph glands are clear. He says to take the nodule out is to make super sure they got everything.
Now the freaking out part.
Could someone just kind of calm me down? I'm not scared to have another surgery. He said it was an easy surgery.
Is it an easy surgery? Could someone tell me what to expect?
I have anxiety. I am not chicken to do it. I can do it, I just have the nervous stomach right now. I found out about 3:00 p.m. I don't know why it's hitting me now.
Any advice, ANYTHING - I appreciate. TALK TO ME!
