After a scan for kidney stones, I was diagnosed with a tumour in my left kidney.
I was referred to St James, Dr Cartridge who explained the options available to me which were surgical removal by keyhole or tumour ablation. I was then referred to Dr Wah who explained further about tumour ablation in a very thorough and easy to understand way. It was because she was so understanding, professional and approachable that I felt able to make a confident decision to go ahead with the ablation.
I had the surgery at St James' very quickly after consultation and felt that the level of support and care received was excellent from all staff in all departments.
I have recovered well.
