Renal Cyst Questions
Hi, I'm new here, this is my first contact.
I'm not sure where to begin or how much to divulge at first. The short of it is that I have a very persistent, very productive renal cyst, left kidney upper pole, anterior. I have complained of abdominal pain for twelve years, the last two I have been very ill and in pain. The only relief is when I get the cyst drained which has occurred four times, one of those was laproscopic surgery to remove the cyst membrane…but, it came right back. Since that surgery I have been told there is nothing else to be done. The last two times that it has been drained I opted for local anesthetic and the moment the pressure is relieved, I am relieved, and the symptoms subside…..then it gradually reasserts its dominance over my life in the form of lethargy, pain, shakiness, nausea…the works.
Am I in the right place to ask questions and try to get some help?
