    Surgery

    Procedure or Surgery

    Nephrectomy - first 3 weeks were very difficult but after that things got better. Since cancer was completely encapsulated no additional treatment was needed. Regular scan scheduled.

    Went as Expected: Agree
    Minimal Recovery: Agree
    Minimal Side Effects: Agree
    Minimal Impact to Daily Life: Disagree
