Hi Everyone,

I’m 53 years old and sadly I have stage 1 suspected RCC presenting as a 5cm mass in the upper pole of my left kidney.

Due to the uncertainty around the waiting list times in the C19 era I’m looking at having a laparoscopic Nephrectomy done in the private sector. I have an appointment tomorrow with the consultant.

It’s with regret that I may be diverting from the NHS but would love to know if anyone has had a similar experience or advice for me to reflect on.

stay safe everyone and thanks in advance.
