I'm new to this board and wondered if anyone has any experience of having been told they are at the point of needing to be referred for transplant to then be told that's not possible now due to CT scan having detected a small tumour on one of my kidneys? I was given this news today and I really dont know how to cope with it. I have had one bad oesophageal bleed in September this year with 3 varices banded and a second gastroscopy 4 weeks later with 4 varices banded and due a third gastroscopy in two weeks time. Should the tumour be benign would anyone know if this still limits my ability to be referred for transplant? I understand there's no chance if the tumour is malignant as i dont have 5-10 years to be clear of cancer to wait for a transplant. Having come to terms with the fact I need a transplant to suddenly have that ripped away from is hard to take on board. Any advice greatly appreciated - many thanks
