Cryoablation went great! Kidney is fine on 3 months check up, only lost 20% of upper area, functions great. Now I need a biopsy of a nearby lymph node next week. Doctor says a radiation treatment can take care of it if it’s cancer. We will see. Scans show no other areas of concern, so that’s a plus. Hopefully it’s benign.
