    Glad you're home and now are

    Glad you're home and now are on the mend also thanks for the update. I had my right kidney out on September and the pain meds made me sick so I stopped taking them it helped. To DSmith 23 good luck to you. Hope all goes smoothly and that you're on the mend soon.

    Hi all!! Sorry I disappeared,

    Hi all!! Sorry I disappeared, but have been back to the hospital since Sunday. I was really weak and light headed. Passed out on Sat so ended up in this lovely place again lol. I was dehydrated. They did a thousand tests and everything is fine! I have been walking and feel back to life today. I should after having around 8 bags of IV fluid lol. Thank you for all of the comments and well-wishes! Will any of this ever seem real? For some reason I feel a bit anxious to get the results. Already had a shocker finding all of this out so who is to say another shock isn't in store?? Ugh...I hope it is a "good" shock xoxo.

    I know the feeling

    I know that anxious feeling very well.  My path report wasn't what I expected and it threw me for a loop.  You'll feel much better once you get the report and know what you'll be dealing with.  Make sure you drink lots of water and eat something even though you're probably no hungry.  I lived on chicken noodle soup and scrambled eggs for the first week out of the hospital.  It was 2 weeks before I even felt I could eat anything at all.  Get lots of rest...Ill keep you in my prayers.

    Not as good

    My path report wasn't as good as we'd hoped.  The tumor had broken containment and was starting into the renal vien.  It diagnosed as a T3a...The good news is the margins were negative as was the fatty tissue around the tumor and nothing in the lymph nodes.  My surgeon is optimistic, but I'm still a little anxious.  I had my sit down meeting  with him yesterday and he showed me a study from Sloan-Kettering in New York which puts recurrance at 8%.  Hope your's is better.

    Sorry to hear that! It does

    Sorry to hear that! It does sound positive though (easy for me to say). Sounds like they got it just in time. Although it broke containment, everything was clear. Also, 92% chance of never coming back!!!!!! I should have my results on Nov. 28th.
