Hi, got back from Adelaide about 4pm after seeing the urology Registrar.
More confused than ever now as the Registrar is really not certain whether it is kidney cancer. But when I said what my Nephrologist said last week that it is kidney cancer his answer was it is a probability. One thing I am pleased about is that he is organising a MRI scan. I would rather be certain that it is KC. Anyhow this usually take 2 to 3 months for a MRI so I have this much longer to be dialysis free.
My Nephrologist had spoken to one of the head doctor at this hospital and they had decided that the kidney will be taken out by the end of this month which I was not happy about as it was too quick. The Registrar did comment that my kidney function is stable and that if they remove the kidney it would put me over the end and onto dialysis.
One of my friends suggested that I ring my Nephrologist next week to tell him what the Registrar said. But then this is the doctor who said that the kidney needs to come out by the end of the month. I do wonder if the head doctor corresponded with the Registrar.
I would love to be here at home when my next grandchild is born next month. (Dwayne’s child). Can’t wait for this event to happen.
So still none the wiser. So hopefully now I can finish of my house. LOL
I do still have the fistula raised on Monday week. This also was worrying me as I have this done on the 17th June was supposed to lose my kidney just after this, my arm would not have been healed by this time and they would have to start putting needles in it. At least the arm will have time to heal properly.
take care and have a great weekend
