It took me months before I was diagnosed because of wait times to see family doctors and specialists because of their wait lists and doctors vacation times.

I was diagnosed with kidney cancer in August and on November 9th. I am now having my surgery. I am hoping the time before January 2006 and November 2006 will not have caused me further complications.

I must say that I have not been happy with the wait times for diagnosis but I am pleased that I only had a one month wait from the time I spoke to the surgeon.

I would have been happier if he had scheduled it for the next week but one month compared to what others have had to wait — I guess I am lucky They will remove one kidney on November 9th. Thank you for allowing me to share and say a prayer.
