I just had a partial neph last Thursday, 3/22/18, for a 3.2 x 2.8 tumor, and it has been a rough week at times. The surgeon was confident he got it all, and said there were clear margins. I have been anxiously awaiting the pathology report. Well, he just called, and it is BENIGN! I can hardly believe it! I truly appreciate all the support and advice I have received from the good people on this board. I feel like I’ve just won the lottery! I still have a long way to go in my recovery, and I will probably need stents in my kidneys to help manage my bp, but for now...AHHH! It has been the most difficult 3 weeks (from diagnosis to surgery to today) of my life. God’s blessings to all of you!

---this proves that there are 10% who turn out benign even after being nephed. You are allowed to keep the membership beanie anyway. You did the right thing given the odds.

You are the second or third person that has reported a benign tumor since I've been on the board.  Countless others haven't been as fortunate.  This is celebration time for you Arknut.  Congratulations!
