    Removal of kidney and mass failed

    Procedure or Surgery

    The surgeons expected to easily remove the kidney and then the bulk of the mass. Since my husband was is such good health otherwise the expected him to get 15 or more years. Never did any of us expect they wouldn't be able to remove the kidney. It was totally encompassed by the cancer.

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