Well today was the day Mark (hubby) saw the specialist and the news isn't good but it could have been worse.
First, his lungs look fine. No sign of whatever they saw on last chest scan. This is a relief.
However, there is definately a new mass in the same kidney as last march. This means, he will be having surgery again and we await word when. I we know is November. His surgeon is meeting with her collegues to see if another partial or the whole kidney, this time. Her fear is that he may have simething called Birt-Hogg-Dupe syndrome and doesn't want to leave him with just one kidney if possible.
This new mass wasn't there 8 months ago and is just about 1cm. We hardly know what to think. Need time to proess, I suppose.
Wishing you all the best,
