    Diagnosed

    Oh No

    had gastric bypass surgery in May 2010. 8 months later I was having issues with diverticulitis and was hospitalized and had a catscan. Found a tumor on my right kidney. Was told it had been growing there for about 10 years undetected.

    Surgery

    Procedure or Surgery

    I already have trouble getting in enough fluids due to gastric bypass.My right kidney was removed and Stage 1 Renal Carcinoma was the diagnosis. Now I have to be more careful to drink enough water. I am being monitored to determine if any cancer will come back.

    Went as Expected: Strongly Agree
    Minimal Recovery: Agree

    Anniversary

    Celebration

    1 year has gone by since surgery, no cancer has returned yet. Feel like I am holding my breath waiting for bad news to come.
