Update From My Urologist Visit

[ Edited ]

As many of you know, I saw a Urologist today due to a lesion found on my kidney during a CT scan.  The Urologist said that he would recommend surgery to remove the lesion.  That particular surgery is done robotically, and he doesn't do robotic surgery anymore.  They have a Urologist in their practice who does all of the robotic surgeries.  I will see him on the 19th.  It's disappointing to have to wait again to see someone else.

 

He did talk to me a lot about kidney cancer and the surgery though.  He showed me the CT scan and where the lesion was.  He said that most kidney cancers were found by a CT scan that was done for another reason, which is what I read.

 

There is something else going on with me though because my blood pressure shot way up after always being under 120/80.  I have other things happening, too.  He said it's possible that I have kidney disease and kidney cancer.  He only treats kidney cancer and not kidney disease.  I have a follow-up appointment with my internal medicine doctor next Tuesday and will discuss it with her.  She is running tests that hopefully will be back by then.

 

I'm having a renal ultrasound that she ordered tomorrow afternoon.  I am so appreciative of everyone's continued thoughts and prayers.


Day after day the whole day through, wherever my road inclined, four feet said 'I'm coming with you!' and trotted along behind. Kipling
