I have 1 word....Scared! I am only 45 and the Dr. found a 4cm tumor on my left kidney right next to the uretha. Not sure if he will be preforming partial or complete. I read your posts about what to expect: pain, recovery, etc. My worry is "did it spread", will I need chemo and if I am only left with 1 kidney what drastic preventions do I have to take to make sure that it stays alive and well? Of course, I have a thousand things running through my mind, but I guess these were my main concerns. Any help or advice would be greatly appreaticated. Thank you, Tina p.s. Please prayer for me!
