Pain 8 weeks post op
Hello everyone...I am a newbie to this board. I am about 8 weeks post op from a total right kidney removal.

So I went today to get my follow up done . I will be 6 years in January. Looked in portal....Chest xray good, thyroid good, but ultrasound reads "right midsole parapelvic cyst 1.7 x 1.1 x 1.0 cm".

I received encouragement by reading your stories and thought perhaps that I should share my own story in the event that someone else might need similar encouragement. I…
Hello everyone, I just recently had an ultrasound to find out if I had a cyst or solid tumor on my kidney. I meet with another doctor tomorrow. but the lady from my doctors office said they were highly suspicious off renal cell carcinom. can they tell that much by an ultrasound ? Is there hope it could be non cancerous?…
Hello everyone, was glad to see several NEDs lately! Hoping for the same for my husband. His chest x-ray is coming on Friday. He hadn't had one for 2 years already. As he was Stage 1a Grade 1, doctor stopped doing follow ups after 3 years. Now husband does it on his own initiative (luckily scans are rather cheap in our…
