I found out I had a mass on the left upper pole of my kidney. I was wanting to have the gastric sleeve for weight loss and so that put that on hold. They did an ablation which did nothing but cause allot of scar tissue. They keep putting off surgery. My last MRI showed it was 3.2 cm and now I have a cyst on my adrenal gland and my spleen is enlarged. The mass is over lapping the but of my pancreas. My doctor says that I can go ahead and have the weight loss surgery but my weight loss surgery doctor says absolutely not. This has been going on since 12 /2020..

    Sorry you are going through this. I have a 1.7 cm mass on my right kidney. I am leaning towards getting the ablation. Could you tell me your experience with it. Hope you are feeling better

      yes ma'am but this is just my experience. I wish I hadn't had the ablation done. My Doctor now, who is a different doctor than the one that did the ablation, says that there is so much scar tissue from the ablation and that it looks like a bomb went off in there. So now I pretty much have to remove the kidney. They are still just watching it for now. I hope things go smoothly with what you decide to do.
