    Re: Kidney mass

    Hi kieren.

    I was diagnosed 5 weeks ago with kidney cancer. Two weeks later i had a radical nephrectomy (they took the kidney out). Surgery was rough but alternative far worse. My cancer was self contained in the kidney and the tumor. Stage one. No radiation or chemo.

    My worst feeling was how was i going to live on one kidney. As i was worrying i suddenly realized i go through life every day with one brain, one stomach, one bladder, one liver etc. i never ever give it a second thought. My philosophy is if i have cancer get it the hell out. Hang tight, it will be over soon and so will your worries.
