Lindsay's operation

Lindsay had an ultra sound scan followed by a CT scan which revealed a small lump on her right kidney.  The consultant at King's College Hospital advised thst because there was an 80% possibility that the tumour was cancerous,   the kidney should be removed.  This is a routine operation involving keyhole surgery  and a 4 day stay in hospital, then taking it easy for a week or two afterwards.  The consultant and others assure her that one can live perfectly well with one kidney (though he warned that contact sports, such as rugby football, should be avoided!)

She is having the pre-assessment next Monday, and the operation on Thursday June 25. Needless to say, she is taking it very calmly.
