I had my post op appointment today and I found out my tumor was an Angiomyolipoma. They told me that on the phone but all I heard was benign. Now that they know what it was they want to follow the cyst or tumor in my other kidney because these Angiomyolipomas can grow fast, impair kidney function, and can hemorrage which can be life threatening. I'm not freaked out. The doctor only told me he wanted to schedule a sonogram in 6 months. I read the other stuff on the Internet. I guess another surgery might be in my future but it wasn't that bad.
