    Diagnosed

    Oh No

    My father had a persistant dry cough and pain in his side. The docs were treating the pain in his side as arthritus for about a year. They finally did an MRI and found a mass in his kidney and lung. The kidney tested positive for cancer but the lung did not (at this time). It was more than an "OH NO" moment. More like an "OH ****" moment.

    Procedure or Surgery

    His kidney cancer was stage 1 and they removed 1/3 of his right kidney and 2 kidney stone from the left. The recovery was more painful that expected mainly because he was cut on both sides.

    Went as Expected: Strongly Agree
    Minimal Recovery: Neutral/NA
    Minimal Side Effects: Agree
    Minimal Impact to Daily Life: Agree
