  • Hello Salvo,

    sorry to hear that you have been diagnosed, it comes as a shock doesn’t it. I would say that the purpose of this group is for you to be in contact with people who have gone through similar issues to you, in order for you to gain support and some top tips.

    You may at times feel that you want to express how you feel, but don’t want to tell family,…..this group is ideal for that and for raising your spirits.

    Take care and do post on the site to let us know how you are.

    Best wishes Julie x

If you can tell me more abut your situation  be appreciated.  At the moment  I am recovering well bit I got some discomfort  on the other side of my kidney  I hope nothing serious  I been  contact the doctor  hopefully  all well will see .tanks salvo

  • Hello Salvo, Gosh, it’s nice to meet someone else with my type of cancer! I think that most of my information is already in the profile, I am wondering whether you are considering any type of genetic link, with your mother having the same ( it’s good to hear that she is 91)!

    So I haven’t got any history of kidney cancer in my family, my dad was one of seven boys and there are a number of his brothers and him who have had prostate cancer.

    As will have read. I have a cyst on my other kidney, but currently, or at least at the last scan, things are looking okay with that.

    I have however, been quite physically unwell with coughs and colds recently, I have also had Covid a few times! I am a bit concerned as to whether my immune system is low and so I’m thinking of going to see the GP, as literally I seem to have a cough or cold about every three weeks.

    Most of the time, I just managr to put things to the back of my mind and get on with life, albeit I don’t think life is ever quite the same again as there is a worry element that hasn’t previously been there. That said I do feel as though I can live a fulfilled life and have a very positive outlook on life.

    I don’t know whether this answered your question, but if not, please do give me a shout.

    Wishing you all the very best Jules  x
