    Diagnosed

    Oh No

    I had a pain in my back for 2 weeks so decided to go to my doctor before I traveled to Savannah, Ga. for my son's graduation. Doctor found blood in my urine - thought it may be kidney stones and sent my to the hospital for cat scan. Turns out they found a growth the size of a man's fist in my left kidney. Went the next day for an MRI for further investigation. Went to a very good urologist/surgeon, Dr. Troy Sukkarieh in Morganville, NJ. Said I could fly but needed surgery asap. As I am a teacher, I finished the school year and was scheduled for surgery 3 days school year ended
