I have a question. Has anyone had metastases to lung after radical nephrectomy and had surgery? I had neprectomy in May, 2006. In Feb., 2008 solitary mass in my lung was found. I had surgery to remove it in March 11, 2008 and it turned out to be the kidney cancer. I was doing better and now almost 2 months later, I am feeling bad again. The doctor has said this type of surgery takes 3 months to recover from. Has anyone else had this experience? My fear of course is that my feeling bad is not the recovery, but rather the cancer spread somewhere else. I have scans scheduled in June, but it is hard to wait. I would just like to hear how others have fared after thoractomy. Thanks

I hope this finds you well. I have just had my left kidney removed 6/13/2008 and have had a very hard recovery. will the pain ever stop ? I am afraid that it will come back also. I am so tired all the time and do not sleep most nights. How can I be positive with all this going on. Please if i can help you please let me know and also I really need to speak to someone going through this also. My prayers are with you. My email is firstname.lastname@example.org
Have a good day !
My name is Cattie I have been through the same surgery on 3/31/08 and still have alot of discomfort in the surgical area but seems to be getting better but I have also a reacurrence of the tumor in that area and alot more areas. But I can tell you it takes a long time to get over that surgery. God has truely gotten where I am today! Because before surgery they said was a simple thing and would be up and going in no time, but it turned out to be alot worse than they said or thought. It had grown so much in two weeks it was remarkable, it had attached my colon to the kidney and alot of other stuff, alot had to be removed including 14+inches of colon. Treatment has only slowed down the growth of this stuff so far have had two different kinds Sutent and now Nexavar for three months not the answer either so we(I) will just keep PRAYING and trying other stuff I hope MD will have the answer I need.
