GHMHCXDec. of 2004 my husband went in for blood in his urine. The amount of blood was like looking at a glass of bad red wine. He had no fever no pain no burning no frquency of urinating. The doctor gave him a perscription for antibiotics and sent him on his way. No follow-up. Six months later he started complaining of groining and leg pain. He was given pain killers and sent on his way. Dec. 2005 he is suffering more back pain goes to physical therapyfor months even sees back specialist. MRI done in Dec 2005 few small spots in L4 doctor says nothing he can do continue physical therapy. By March of 2006he can hardly stand the pain and is taking 4 baths a night to try to get relief. Goes for another MRI March 30 2006. MRI shows a tumor 2 inches or the size of a walnut. He is sent to the hospital for the proper test to find out he has kidney cancer. He was given 6 months. I stopped listening to these doctors. I searched the internet and found the best RCC doctor I could find. He had the tumor in the back radiated the left kidney removed and went through HD IL2. He is sitting next to me now after walking 5 miles. Right now he is cancer free. Don't take a doctors word as gossiple do your own research it could save a life maybe the one you love or your own.
