The experts here can give you way more information than I can (my surgery is Monday), but that sounds like a really, really good prognosis.

Grade 2 is good. It's not aggressive. Clean margins mean no cancer cells left at the surgical site. Glad it's behind you. Wishing you a quick recovery.

Glad you are done with surgery.  Hope your recovery goes well!  Glad to hear about clear margins too.  That's good news!

Still at the hospital.  my surgery Feb-12 , today is the 15 and still have some discomfort and pain, constipation is terrible

Its a wild ride....  so far they told me my pathology came back and it was a rcc grade 2.  Clear margins, also the doctor told me to come back for scan in 6 MONTHS?   I was thinking that it will be in 3 or 4

I am sure that my battle vs Anxiety begins now...

Your surgery is over! Try to drink lots of water and walk as much as you are able without overdoing it. Clean margins are good, like others have said, it means they think they removed all of the cancer. 6 month checkups are pretty standard I think but you can ask your doc. I am on a 6 month schedule for scans and check ups. Hope you heal quickly!

Glad to hear the good news!  It gets easier from here.

My doc also said 6 months for a follow up scan.  His reasoning was that it if it did grow back, it would take that long to be noticable on the CT scan.  Made sense at the time.  My tumor sounds very similar to yours in size and grade, so perhaps its just a slow growing type.

Mine was also after six months. Walk as much as possible and drink lots of water. Ask for stool softener. All will help with constipation. It was almost a week for me so hang in there.
