    Like so many of us, cancer comes as a complete surprise. Your doctors were spot on ordering further tests and finding this at a hopefully early stage . My doctors failed me and I failed myself by not being more of an advocate foe my own medical care. This crappy cancer made me stronger than I knew I could be , and yes, the antidepressant helped also. I am a firm believer that you use all the weapons in the arsenal to fight the toll this disease takes on us both physically and mentally. Not many people look forward to having surgery. I have had a few , all of them with varying recovery times. They were all necessary and I am better and alive today for having had them. I hope you are able to gather your strength and will to survive all of this. You have family and a son who , I am sure, will be all the better for your presence and support. Additionally, a support group for you sounds like a good idea. I have belonged to three support groups online since my diagnosis in 2013 and have benefited immensely from that support. I wish you success with your surgery Nanalily and that you find better days ahead.

    Oh No (Just Diagnosed): Diagnosis is a complete surprise. I have no symptoms but my Primary Care doctor referred me to a Urologist to consult about my current medications potential to affect my kidneys. Lane work the Urologist came back normal but he ordered an ultrasound anyway to establish a baseline in case of future issues. The ultrasound revealed a cancerous tumor in my left kidney. I have a CT scan tomorrow to evaluate if it has metastasized and determine what kind of surgery would be best. I am a little numb emotionally and a little still in denial. I’m also dreading having surgery and hope it can be done robotically assisted for an easier recovery. Thanks for listening.

      I know what you are feeling right now! That was me 13 years ago when I had a ct scan show a tumor in my left kidney. Mine had become very large, grapefruit size, so it had to go. If it’s not very large you may be able to have laparoscopic surgery. There are other options too. Do some research and ask your doctor about the best plan for you. Write down your questions and concerns for your doctor, so you won’t forget. Good luck! Keep us posted here. We are here to give you the support of people who have been there, done that!
