Solitary kidney health
Thank you. Am 76 so hoping for many more years. Cancer doctor thinks removal of kidney got all of cancer removed but not willing to say re occurance is 0%. Will watch it with Ct scans every six months. Again thank you.

That's good news, @haroldpingel1943. Physicians will never say that there is a 0% chance of recurrence. Frankly that's not a promise anyone can make. But it sounds like they got everything. Do you have to have any further treatment? Did they give you any cautions or information about living with one kidney?
