Hello My name is Bryon, I have just been diagnosed with kidney cancer and bladder cancer. I am awaiting an appointment for an operation to remove my right kidney and the small T2 high cancer in my bladder. In 2017 I had a bowel cancer removed which was successful. It was a surveillance ct scan which picked up my latest problem. My previous scan, 6 months prior to my latest scan showed no signs of kidney or bladder cancer. So it has developed quite quickly. I am 74 yrs, very active and fit.

Hi BryonP , thanks so much for sharing your story. It's great to have you in the community although I'm so sorry to hear about your diagnosis. I hope this next operation is as much of a success as your previous one.

This is a new community in the very early stages of growing. We're hoping it will become a valuable place for many people like you to share experiences and find support. I hope to hear more from you on here!

Hi I am Debs, I was diagnosed with kidney cancer in 2019 at first they thought they thought it was a simple cyst but turned out to be a 19 cm grade 3 cancer, thankfully the took the whole kidney out and the cancer was contained as no cells in the margins but since the operation I have nerve pain on my left side including what feels like neuralgia I have been prescribed amitriptyline which didn’t work codine and paracetamol now I am on gabapentin thanks for reading x
