    went to talk to dr and we got started on dates for surgery and got it over with

    Oh No

    My kidney tumor was found when getting an MRI for lung problem, within 3 months my wife was diagnoised with agressive breast cancer. I had my first surgery (cryoablation) and then she had her surgery. On getting another MRI on the kidney they located a second tumor and did an open partial nephrectomy. I am 9 weeks out from the second surgery.

    after the open partial nephrectomy I had some pain and discomfort. Being tired is the worse part of it for me.
