My first post here. Just wanted to reach out to the young lady with right kidney cyst.
I have been diagnosed with angiomyolipoma it is a non cancerous tumor that gave me lots of problems. I feel better since I have read up on this thing and maybe you could get your doctor to give you something to look up that might give you some hope.
I know the doctors here have a big ego and a bigger attitude, but if they just knew a kind word can sometime help as much as a shot of penicillin. I am one that believes information good or bad can help us heal. I just found out if this thing ruptures and and bleeds again it can be stopped by a fairly simple procedure. And that is huge for me I was worried this would happen again in the night and I would bleed to death. I ask the Dr the urologist about it his answer ( call me and we will take it from there) So I searched on the internet to learn about that and other things I'm afraid he would send me to Emerg Room and I would be there agin for 8 hours before the test were done.
Maybe you can find out the type of cyst. Maybe you can find a type of infection you have and read and find out if they are treating the right thing. They made many mistake with me before the finally misdiagnosed me with appencitis that got me a ct scan. I think another bit of my ole lady wisdom is to try and get a copy of every test they run on you, we pay for it and may need it so why not?
