I was diagnosed in May of this year with a pretty large growth in my right kidney (2a I think). The tumor was contained within the kidney no lymph nodes, viens, or anywhere else by the ct scans and pathology post surgery. I was very blessed to have caught it so early. My 3 month scans, chest xrays, blood and urine tests all came back negative as well.
But now my problems have begun. I am a 36 year old father of 2 wonderful little girls and I cant stop thinking about dying. I constantly battle with thoughts of cancer in other parts of my body.
I think that the anxiety has caused me to lose a good bit of weight and develop some digestion problems. Which in turn cases me to believe that I have other types of cancer.
I hoping that I am not the only one that has gone through this and just need support from people that have gone though the same. I feel like everyone I talk to has no idea what I'm going through so I tune them out when they say everything is going to be fine (even my doctors). Prayer is about the only relief I get and sadly that is often short lived.
Thanks for listening it feels good just to get it out.
