went to see Liver DR. and he gave me clearance to proceed with Nephrectomy.

Went to see Urologist and he scheduled my Bilaterial (double) Nephrectomy for Friday morning November 1, 2019.

Scared to death.  Kidneys are both larger than footballs; and cysts are starting to grow on liver....need to come out in order to get Transplant Kidney, when it comes, in a spot.  No room for it right now. 

Prayers are appreciated!!!!

Prayers being given, with emphasis on a speedy recovery without complications. Hope you can rest up until the surgery so that your body is as good as can be for the healing afterwards.

As my hubby would say, "Don't let what you can't do get in the way of what you can."

I'd be scared, too.  That's major surgery, but it will be a major step forward in that road to getting a transplant, and that's something to be happy about!

Please let us know how the surgery has gone!  Best of luck to you, Hazmat!
