I only have one kidney, due to kidney cancer. Now there is a 3 centimeter cyst on the one remaining kidney. Bosniak means it is probably cancer. They want to try and remove the cyst with a Robotic procedure. Has anyone gone through this Robotic thing? From what I gather, after surgery I will be on dialysis for awhile even if they save the kidney. Worst Scenerio is they will need to remove the only kidney I have and I pretty much know where that leaves me. You can't survive with no kidneys and since it was cancer (the first one) I am not a candidate for transplant. If anyone has any information, no matter how small, I would appreciate some sort of outlook on this. My kidney doctor was pretty up front with me, basically I need to have the surgery, no matter the outcome.
