Hi all I am new to this site. My position is had lots of test following symptoms of passing lots on blood. Had camera in bladder and CT scan which triggered a look up inside my left kidney. The mass is about 5 cm long and just had biopsy to check out fast or slow growth. I does look like the kidney is going to be removed when all this is confirmed on the next few days. Hopefully very soon as of course at that point you just want it out and the not knowing and waiting is the worst part.

Has anyone had a similar thing?

  • Hello positive……..your name is a great start!, I have had a radical nephrectomy and it went well and wasn’t as bad as I thought it would be. I also had a biopsy and the associate anxiety of waiting for the results. I can tell you that from my perspective the waiting stage that you are in is the worst part….once you know what’s happening and there is a plan in place it feels more under control. 

    Wishing you all the best and let us know how you are getting on.

  • Yes the waiting is the worst part even when you know what’s probably coming! I am exactly the same though .. I need a result… then a plan.. then feel like you can deal with it with strength 

    thanks for your kind words
