    Diagnosed

    Oh No

    Started getting tired at work, also had a chronic cough that would not go away ... Doc started treating me with antibiotics for cough, didn't work, changed to a different med, still didn't work. Finally after 6 weeks of going downhill, losing a pound a day, he ordered a CT scan. Saw spots and sent me to a Urologist in Houston at Methodist Hosp. Dr immediately stated I had kidney cancer and that the kidney had to be removed immediately ...

    Procedure or Surgery

    So ... The following week the left kidney was removed, path revealed Renal Cell Carcinoma with 90% Sarcomatoid features, not good.

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