Possible Kidney Cancer 23 years after surviving Ovarian Cancer
I followed this forum a few years back after my daughter was diagnosed with Osteosarcoma. She battled the monster for over 2 years but she lost the fight 3 years ago. I came back here to share my story and to try maybe to find some sense out of this whole thing!
I had a couple of pap smears coming back abnormal and the doctor was suggesting to remove my uterus and cervix since the risk to have a cancer is very high (I had my ovaries removed 23yrs ago due to ovarian cancer), a few weeks later I went to the doctor for abdominal pain, headache and spitting out blood...she ordered a CT scan of my lungs, my head and pelvic area.
The brain is ok, chest cleared but they found a 10cm mass on my right kidney with a 10mm lymph node envolved.
They want to go in a take out my kidney since it is most likely kidney cancer. She wants to remove the uterus and cervix at the same time.
Now this is very rare as she said, but I am still wondering what the heck is going on with me?!
Part of me is freaking out and other part is happy that I will get to see my baby soon!
It may sound crazy and it is actually crazy when I seat back and look at what my life has decided to put me through!
Any thoughts are greatly appreciated!
Till then, I will keep waiting...
