    I have both kidney and lung cancer, right kidney was removed..

    Procedure or Surgery

    Being I have always been healthy and in pretty good physical shape the surgery when well and my left kidney immediately began functioning. The recovery time after surgery was short about three weeks, but I am not as physcially strong as I wants was.

    Chemotherapy

    Drug or Chemo Therapy

    Chemotherapy is something that offers you a chance to inprove your life or a cure. Its up to you to make it work by taking care of your own health and eating the right foods and getting rest. Alway try to do something before asking for help from others. I feel cancer no matter what type you may have will change you. From the way you look and feel, but do not let it stop you from living. If you do it will wear you down and make you weak both physially and mentally.

    Easy to Do: Strongly Agree
    Minimal Side Effects: Strongly Agree
    Minimal Impact to Daily Life: Agree
