I wound up in the ER with a bowel obstruction due to a bad hernia. Long story short the Docs found a small solid mass (1.4x1.3 cm) in my left Kidney after a CT scan of my abdomen. They followed up with a MRI 2 weeks later and strongly suspect low grade Renal Carcinoma. At first the Doc wanted to go in Laproscopic and take a section of Kidney out - after seeing I have no colon and have had 3 surgeries prior in my Abdomen he was concerned about
to much scar tissue being in the way and recommended Cryoablation. They want to destroy the tumor via Percutaneous Cryoablation; plan is to take a biopsy and then freeze\kill the thing either way.
Trying to understand how much time I need to take off from work. Anyone have this done? What kind of recovery time did it take to get over the procedure? I watched a few videos on youtube - looks like they stick 1 or 2 skewers in and have their way.
