Might be back

It's been quite awhile since I checked in.  I had a nephrectomy for rcc over seven years ago.  A month or so ago, I was feeling fatigued and had the Dr order blood work which showed my homoglobin down at 8, so she ordered a CT scan as well as upper and lower GI checks.  The CT scan came back showing possibly some masses in the lymph nodes in the abdomen (on the other side fro the original surgery).  Biopsy was done last week and the results came through a couple of hours ago that the RCC is back.  Waiting to hear from urologist and oncology now.


I'll be in touch,

That's awful. It must be an absolute shock. Please be good to yourself tonight - then tomorrow, you can take it on. You got through once before, you absolutely can do it again. 

Sending you prayers and positive thoughts. We're here for you - you've got this.

So sorry you are having to go through this again. I cannot imagine. Hope you and your doctors come up with great plan of attack.  What was the original size and grade and type? was it a full or partial nephrectomy?
