Removal of kidney (radical nephrectomy), November 2007.
June 26 will have a Da Vinci Robotic surgery to remove the tumor. Didn't realize that if they had to take the whole kidney they can just enlarget the hole and sqeeze it out. That helps as I am saving up leave and the recovery still would be short (~2 weeks).

Scheduled for an open partial nephretomy on April 21st, 2011
November 10,2010. Had the options of 1) Thermal/cryo ablation (probes that heat/freeze the mass) 2) Laproscopic Partial Nephrectomy 3) Robotic (Davinci) Partial Nephrectomy 4) open partial or full nephrectomy. I chose the Davinci and was very happy with the results.

da vinci (robotic) surgery 10/04/2012. Possibly have remove entire kidney due to scar tissue from a prior abdominal surgery.
Nephrectomy of the left kidney April 09. The tumor was only 3cm but involved 6.5cm including cortical swelling. Due to its location it destroyed the collective duct and the hole kidney had to be remove along with the adrenal gland. The normal side effects from a nephrectomy are present. An unexpected side effect is irretractable hiccups, for the past three years that still proceed. Due to my "stone former" status I have to follow the precautionary diet to prevent me from forming new kidney stones
