Still kicking

Joe_fh Member Posts: 50 Member

Ya know, after the fear wears off, so many of us drift away from these foums. Numerous reasons, but one that holds true for me is that I am reluctant to think about it so much. I fear that perhaps this tendancy leads new members to new fears - where are the older members? I know I used to think that when I was a newbie...

At any rate, I am happy to report that I am still alive and kicking with NED so far. My left kidney was removed 9/2012 due to ccRcc. a big ole honking 12cm tumor. Haven't quite hit the 5 year mark yet, but I am getting there.

Be well folks.

    Not just 4 years NED



    Being 4 years NED with such a large tumor is a lot more than 10 or 15 years NED with a little buggar. Go out and celebrate.

    That was a big ole honker!!  Fear not.  My surgery (partial) was done 10/05/2012, (that would be October 5th, for those that it's written otherwise) although I didn't find this forum till earlier this year.  Wish I'd known of it sooner because it has helped me immensely!!

    Now get out there and celebrate life Joe!!

    Kidney Cancer

    I had my right kidney removed 5 years ago and I now have the all clear. I am feeling well and have no problems with only one kidney.

    great news

    Good news that your are still cancer free after 5 years. Right kidney was removed Dec 2005, I was in remission for 9 years before I was told the cancer was back and had metastasized. Eat healthy and be active is my best advise.
