Cancer?
« on: February 14, 2018, 11:31:30 AM »
I've spoken of this in a few other threads, but I'll try to give the whole story here. Back about 3 weeks or so ago I had an attack of diverticulitis. I was fairly sure what it was, and at the ER  they did a CAT scan to confirm it was indeed diverticulitis.  When the CAT scan was read the Dr also said I have a 3cm x3cm "lesion" on my left kidney.
Then I went to a urologist who did a sonogram and then read both the CAT scan and the sonogram and told me that with about 80% certainty I have cancer on my left kidney. At that point a biopsy was scheduled for yesterday, but the day before the biopsy was changed, because the blood thinner I was on was still in my system despite being off it for 5 days. I now was put on an injectable blood thinner and can take that every day 2x, morning and night until 5 days after the biopsy and that is now set for 2/21.
Once cancer is determined to be what that "lesion" is, I'll have robotic surgery to remove it. I could lose anywhere from 20% to the entire kidney. That won't be known until the surgery.
I will post more as it is discovered.
Prayers are appreciated, thanks.

Our prayers as well, we've dealt with this too much, and yes they can be wrong.  My step daughter has dealt with cancer since she was a baby, a few years back they removed a grapefruit size tumor from her maybe 90# body, it wasn't cancerous, hang in there we're with you.
