Kidney removed in 1990. He was cancer free until July 2008
Tim had a Laparscopic nephrectomy Nov 17th 2008, his left kidney was removed, along with adrenal gland, 8 lymph nodes & fatty tissue, all had cancer involvement. So far the surgery is a sucuss, no new growth in 5 years in this area.
my tumor was removed laproscopy. I am still in a little pain across back and abdomen. The pain in the shoulders was the worse I was told this is where the gas escapes when they fill you up with gas. The doctor said he got it all.
It removed the tumor

Partial Right Nephrectomy. I was up an playing Soccer for my team in 1 month. Surgery wan't too bad but the emotional roller coster has been a nightmare. I am trying to just "Let go and Let GOD". I'm not to good at giving up control.
NIH physicians were great and I'm doing well.
Sugery went well. All margins were clear.
cancer has not spread to area around kidney as of yet has been 2 years since removal
Surgery went well, no lasting side effects.
