Jay had a pain in his lower stomach area. He called the Dr. for an appointment. by the time he saw the Dr. the pain was gone. He kept the appt. and was sent for an ultrasound. To our surprise, he was told there were some spots on his kidneys. Did a CT scan the next day. Dr. called with results about 1/2 hour after appointment. The results were malignant tumors on both kidneys. Dr. had never seen this in both kidneys. After a trip to a urologist the next day we were referred to OSHU. Dr. Liu is Jay's Dr. in Portland and we both really liked her and feel confident all will go well. We thank you for all of your support and prayers!
