I haven't posted in a while, been so busy last few months it was all I coulld do to try and catch up on the board. Very saddened to hear about TW and Blkjak. :(.
Anywho, as expected with followup testing on the horizon, my mind is in overdrive. I have convinced myself they'll find a recurrence. (OPN last Oct. Stage 1, grade 2)
I've had some bad kidney pains and spasms of late, and my entire left side is swollen. Saw my GP today who was a bit concerned. She felt a mass of sorts in there . Yikes. Added to that is a constant sharp/severe upper arm pain. Some days when I use my hand, the humerous feels like it will break. My GP ordered an xray for it, which I will have done tomorrow. Cross fingers it's just old age.
Monday of next week is an MRI. Gawd I hate them! Being claustrophobic adds to the anxiety for sure.
Mid May is my first followup CT for the rcc. After that I see the Uro. Dollars to donuts I get the results in the mail first though. Just like my original dx. Not a fun way to discover cancer.
