I was admitted into hospital yesterday for severe abdominal pain, this culminated my having a scan with contrast. I had only just had my six month scan back in September, which showed a clear result on my kidney. Anyway! yesterday they were unable to determine the cause of the pain but they did discover a new 1.7 cm tumour on the old site and two lesions on the back of my kidney.
I first had kidney cancer ten years ago when living in the States, after moving to Fance I was having my kidney monitored every year. The results were always clear until an MRI in January 2013 when a 4.5 x 3 cm tumour was discovered, obviously missed for over three years. This recent conflicting result is a little like déjà vue, I am beginning to lose faith in the process and the ability of the radioligists. I know that with smaller growths it is often wait and watch, I just hope if that is the case whoever is doing the watching is blessed with sight in at LEAST one eye this time!!! I am seeing my surgeon next week, so hopefully he will know what's going on because I definately don't:(
