Re: I have a 13 cm mass

@kidneymass- happen to see your post . Just wanted to say hope you are doing well. My father was dx with RCC in 2003. I remember the shock of hearing that. He had just started losing weight& extremely weak. His rbc were at like 3-4. All his blood was going to the tumor. He had to have his kidney & tumor removed also by open surgery. I can't believe you went thru that without narcotics. My dad was almost 60 yrs old & had never taken pain meds. And I don't know if he would've survived without them at that time. My dad was later told at md Anderson that he has a spot on his l kidney & one on his lung. The only tx they told him as of 2006 was experimental & he chose not to do it. The good news is my dad is alive & well for a man of 77 . Course we are a god believing family & he says that god has healed him. All I know is the doctors aren't sure why he's still here. Anyway your story touched me because you are young & I know how devastating it can be but I also know how it can give you a new appreciation for life. Good luck!

Re: I have a 13 cm mass

Well I haven't posted in some time so I think it is time for an update. I went back to work Thursday the 15th, and boy did it kick my butt. I was sore all over. I only had to work 2 days because my work shuts down for 2 weeks for Christmas. Now I get 2 weeks to recover from working. I really feel pretty good. I thank everyone who sent out their thoughts and prayers. Hopefully all keeps going well.

Re: I have a 13 cm mass

Hello everyone! Well, my recovery has gone well and my return to work has been ok. It sure wears me out. I went for a ct, MRI, and blood work last week. I called for results and the nurse said there is a spot on the lower lobe of my right lung and my blood work was abnormal. When I asked for more info they said we will review everything at next weeks visit. Very worried this may make it stage 4.
