Four months ago I had a 6 hour operation to remove an aggressive Fuhrman grade 4 malignancy on my right kidney that had spread to six of twelve lymph nodes removed at the same time. Recovery for me has been slow and somewhat frustrating as originally my surgeon had told me it would take 6 to 8 weeks. He lied. After four months I can actually wear loose clothing and venture outdoors for several hours and can now do light housework.
My family and survived the two major earthquakes that shattered our homes, roads and city this past year. Now this battle with cancer has become even more important to me and my family than wondering what to do with my wrecked home. I would love to chat with anyone also trying to recover from similiar surgery with RCC and who like me is wondering just when or where it might come back.
