Following the surgery Doctors found a blood clot in my neck. They started me on blood thinners to get rid of the blood clot. The hemmorraging from this gave medical staff a reason to look further. A growth was found on my kidney and it has metastasized to the adrenal gland. Surgery is scheduled for March 1st to remove the growth on the kidney and the affected gland. The surgery will take place at St Mary's in Rochester.
