    Cryo ablation

    Anyone had this procedure? I only have one kidney now, lost other to renal cell 13 years ago, returned in a lung 10 years ago, had surgery to remove, now this kidney has a tumor, small, oncologist recommended this procedure. Trying to save this kidney!

      Hello Tina! I am very much like you just a couple years younger. Situation the same up to the point of the second kidney issue. I have another friend who had the cryogenic done on there remaining kidney and it worked like a charm. He’s been great for 8 years now. Took care of it with no problems since. By the way I also live in NC just outside Charlotte.
