Renal Cell Carcinoma
« on: November 09, 2016, 04:42:39 am »
I was cured of Hep C March of 2015.  Had approximately 9 months of horrible fatigue, depression and other things that would come and go.  In April of 2016, I still was cleared of Hep C and had my energy back and my blood work was absolutely perfect and even my cholesterol dropped over 30 points.  I can't remember having every single test be totally optimal.

I have had gallstones for over a decade and have an ultrasound about every 2 years.  This year I had an unwanted surprise; a small spot on my left kidney.  With further tests I have been diagnosed with Renal Cell Carcinoma.  The prognosis looks good as it is small, all of my blood work including my kidney panel are absolutely perfect and I am on no medication. (age 70...how did that happen?)

I have been referred to a kidney center and will have to travel out of state for that as soon as possible.

I wanted to post this to see if anyone else has had any type of cancer pop up post treatment as it seems very suspicious to me.  My doctor checked another site, which I do not have at this time, and she said there were many reports of cancer with Harvoni success patients post treatment.  She is looking into that and when I get the site I will share it.

Please let me know of any similar problems that could be linked with this.

Thank you and I hope everyone is doing well and sincerely hope my case is an isolated one or not even related to Harvoni.
