    I was stage 1 grade 2 and thought at the time how fortunate I was, But as I read and learn more of RCC and how cunning this disease is, I understanding how important future follow up are no matter what stage or grade you had. Congratulation on the clean scan

    Oh No (Diagnosed): As the doctor was telling me that they found a mass in my right kidney. I said to him that my mother died of kidney cancer. He had a look of panic on his face, as he went search through my medical file. Nothing he said to me registered then,but It hit me when I got in my car to leave.

    Procedure or Surgery (Surgery): June 18th 2012 I had a laparoscopic hand assisted partial right nephrectomy. I was in the hospital for 5 days and out of work for 2 month. there is still some discomfort at times. The pathology report came back stage 1 grade 2, so all is good.
