"Grateful for kidney tumour ablation treatment"

About: St James's University Hospital / Urology

(as the patient),

As a result from having a MRI scan for the further progession of my Parkinson's, the scan showed a mass in the right kidney. This was picked up by my Dr. who followed it up and I was moved through the various systems from clinic to surgon. Very quickly.

They were very helpful and explained it very clearly to me and my wife, we also asked for a copy of the explanation and that was posted out and we found that reassuring.

Within a month I was in having the procedure performed "right renal cryo ablation treatment" in October 2014. I felt no pain after the treatment and also there was no scarring from where the needles were placed into my back and was up and about the next day. The staff were very caring on the ward too.

I wish Dr Wah and the team every success in the future and hope they can continue with this amazing treatment. I had a futher 2 MRI scans following the surgery and we are pleased to be told it was a success. A big thank you to everyone who saw us through all of this.

Dear Shuffle,

Thank you for taking the time to write to us.

It was heartwarming to read your post and I am very happy to know that you are doing well following your procedure.

I have passed your kind words to Dr Wah as well as the Matron and Head of Nursing for Oncology; I have asked that they share your words of praise with their team members who will be pleased to hear that your experience was positive.

With kind regards
