I'm new and just need someone to hold me pwease I'm scared!  Here is my About Me pasted for feedback:

We were only dating at the time but around 12/5/2012 my (now husband) boyfriend had a tumor and laparoscopic resection of the right kidney.

Around 6/7/2014 - We thought my husband had kidney stones but they ran extra tests.

On 6/11/12 we met with an oncologist and she "said" my husband has stage 1 recurring kidney cancer that has metastasized (he has 2 tumors in the lungs and several in the abdomen).

On 6/17/2014 we are going to MD Anderson to get a second opinion because what I have learned online is that you can't be both "Stage 1" and "recurring and metastasized" together.

My husband has rheumatoid arthritis and high blood pressure

Thanks for checking in on me.  I've been posting on the kidney cancer board because it is more active than this one.  Here is the newest addition On 6/25/2014 we met with another md anderson specialist oncologist for kidney cancer. He is requesting the pathology slides from my husband 2012 operation to review himself because the written report does not specify if the primary is clear cell or papillary. He did mention it is advanced and aggressive and stage 4.

I will try to keep this post active and up to date.  Thanks!
