My husband was having problems and he figured it was a kidney stone- he has had them before and so he went into the doctor. Yes, he has a kidney stone and it will need to be removed.
Something else showed up on the CT scan though….two tumors on his right kidney. The nephrologist says that the right kidney is dead and needs to be removed. He thinks it’s cancer. We’ll know more after surgery.
Ron is very calm about the whole thing, says if it’s his time to go, he’s ready….I’m ready to scream and cry, though, not sure what to think, say or do.
He goes in next week for another CT scan and then we’ll decide on a date for surgery.
I’m scared because there are TWO tumors on the kidney, not just one. If it was one, I could think that it’s a benign growth, but doesn’t this mean it’s spread? Does benign cancer spread like this? I’m so scared. I love him and can’t imagine him going through all the garbage that chemo and radiation and all that does to a human being.
