Hi everyone. I am coming up soon on 3 months post nephrectomy of left kidney. Original diagnosis was in January. Every day I am still scare and worried for the future and that the cancer may still be present. I am still young - 53.

Would love to hear from others on their journey and how long it took them to feel back to normal or is there no normal anymore?

Hi @Hidden username‍,

Hi @rcc0088‍ - I have not had the surgery, so I can't speak to feeling normal after everything you went through in surgery. But, I do not know if a "normal" what we experienced or felt prior to the diagnosis is a realistic expectation. I think, we will have a new normal and it is an on-going experience that will take mental strength, healthy choices, psychological maintenance, and medications/supplements.

Sorry about that  nervous newbie hit the wrong button. I'm 54 y/m up until January 30th 2020 I was just tired and stressed, and then a ultra of my abdomin turned up a "mass" aka tumor 14 x 10 cm.  tumor on left kidney that has enveloped the renal vein. So, with that being said my treatment will be decided on friday the 21st of January 2020.
