While dealing with pouch issues and going back to an ileostomy due to leak and spinal infection, they found a small 8mm tumor on my kidney in March when doing CT Scan on abdomen. Nobody ever said anything about it while in hospital and actually when reading my discharge reports a week later after i got home i read about it. siad 8mm hyperdense indeterminate lesion in left kidney. I called my surgeon to ask him and he said hes not too concerned about it and the tech probably was not either and thats why nobody questioned it. He sent it over to his colleague to view itm and he stated to go get rescanned in October and they can compare films. 3 weeks ago i went and had another CT scan. Surgeon called me and said they want me to get an MRI now to try and determine what it is cuz the CT scan still was not clear. The report now says its 1cm, which grew 2 mm in 7 months)hypodense indeterminate lesion. Its obviously just not a simple cyst or im sure the ct scan would have determined that. First scan said it was hyperdense and new scan says its hypodense?? I read that hypo is better than hyper.. Anyways getting MRI on saturday, and praying its not cancerous. Still dealing with jpouch that has a hole in it , now i may have to worry about ****ing kidney cancer? it never ends. Because its only 1 cm big its very small, so if anything to be concerned about it shouldnt be too big of a deal. I was reading about cryoablation. They stick a few needle like probes into tumor guided by ct scan and freeze the tumor. very good success rate of destroying it completely and very noninvasive. usually go home next day.All my bloodwork is good, and no kidney function issues at this time.
pray for me...someone please. i want to be around for my daughters who are only 8 and 7
