my son went for a lot of tests last week        he had been in the e.r. the week before  all day
of course he didn't tell mama          but my sister asked if I knew what the dr told him (they work together
on sat when he came to mow he told me about it when I asked,
his heart is still the same as a couple yrs ago when he had tests he has a 2% leakage in one valve   and should be fine
he has sciatica pain as well  and the dr told him to take his large wallet out of his back pocket
he also said the arm and neck pain could be from the sciatica    but scheduled an ent to check it out

but he also has a small mass on one of his kidneys  and has to get a cat scan to check that out
and that scares me
please remember us in your thoughts and prayers

Nellie, I know how hard it is when one of your children is having health problems, but just don't jump to conclusions.  I've decided that all you can do is take one step at a time.

The most difficult thing is probably the mass on his kidney, but it is possible that it is only a cyst.  Think positive, and all of us will be thinking and praying for him.

Nellie, I'll be glad to pray for your son and for you, as well.  It is hard when our kids have any kind of problems, but especially medical.

I know not to worry overmuch until I have a reason
I also remember that my grandfather on my dads side had to have a kidney removed at 80 yrs of age
the dr said that by appearances the kidney had never functioned
thank all of you for caring

GRANA here;
Hi  NELLIE V;
Boy your son &  yourself have a lotto dealw/ tese days
I too had kidney masses .I was fortunate to  be put in touch w/the kidney specialist who years ago "invented"(partial ephrectomy) partial  removal of the are of the kidne  wherethe mass is located ratherthan the whole kidney.This gives the remaing part of the kidney a chanceto regenerate itself They also iopsied the removed mass& checked my lyph nodes to see if had spread there.In mycase it hd not I still have another mass waiting to be removed (partial nephrectomy again I hope) itas moderately painfull &  very expensive $29,000 for surgery &  recovery care plus several weeks in a rehab hospital to  give my body a chance o be built back up again & surgical wound to heal fully .
so Imay not need the second surgery after all InnocentI've been taking Vit D3 as part of the kidney healing/recovery process ;
eems to be new & VIT D3isailable online( mail order)@ a modest price.   I'll keep  you& yours in my thoughts prayers throughout his process ; keeping half or more of the kidney is his best bet for a full recovery

he hasn't heard yet        next dr apt on 30th     said he'd wait    so it's still uncertain


ann
be very careful w/ D3        my sister was put on that huge 3,000 dose after her accident and recovery of a severly fractured femur     and developed kidney stones as a result
the dr's were putting everyone  on that massive dose        and now fda has issued warnings but some still advise that dose
I take D3 daily, but only the amt in my calcium pill  as recommended by my dr

Oh dear, it is so hard to wait and worry.  I know, my husband is also undergoing testing for something in his kidneys.  He had a biopsy of the lymph node today and we didn't get the results yet.  Like he needed this problem with all the other things going on right now.  Hopefully they can figure it out without more invasive testing.

Will be praying for your son and your entire family Nellie.

 remaining kidney is doing well cording totoday's tests ing to  te lab tests done on follow up ....Thanx for the warning, but I have confidence on the 3 docs onitoring my healing process...Hubby's dr wanted toputhim on 50,000IU also &   when asked why? NO AMSWERfrom  that doc so o hubby refused &   switched to a different doc.The dr I saw today s an internist &  cardiologist&  switched myBP meds to one that's been aroubd longertan the one I have been onHer online reviews sayshe "doesn't listen toher patients butIfound her asking some pretty good questions&  definitely listened o y o m answers, as well as listening and answering my questions to her!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
She has been hubby's cardiologis forseveral yers& seemed honestly delighted to see hi again) he only ses her once or twice a year;'cuz their team effort has helped him fully recover from is heart attack&  other issues He had been on 15 meds from otherdocs& she weaned him off allbut 9 ofthem w/ noharmfllefects, He no longer ends up in the Mrdicare PART D  donut hole a few ties a year making us more financially  comfortable this s year, while still feeling better & getting good lab resuts.
