“Going into a double nephrectomy, I know that most people feel that it’s never going to be the same.”

Going into a double nephrectomy, I know that most people feel that it’s never going to be the same. Even I took a trip for a week to kind of go find myself in the desert and mountain bike and just be away from people for a minute, because I was scared. I came back with a better attitude about it and felt that I was going to make it. I was going to be okay and be optimistic about it, and I did.
If I was talking to someone who’s about to have a nephrectomy I know it’s going to be a life-changing event for them, and if you remain positive, you have a good attitude, if you go into it with that, you’re going to come out pretty good.
