Cycling injury interrupts kidney cancer treatmentsby Dr. Ken Youner, ACKC medical director & survivor on November 20, 2010
Editor’s Note: The blog post below was originally posted by on Dr. Ken’s personal blog — DrKensBattlewithKidneyCancer Blog — on Nov. 4th. We have reposted here and anxiously await news on his status.
On October 2, I suffered a freak accident while riding my bike and fell and had severe cervical spinal cord trauma. I almost died but am now at Mt Sinai hospital spinal cord rehabilitation unit. The last month has been hellacious. My beloved daughter without whom I could not have survived is writing this for me.
I have made some progress in the past week so I am trying very hard to be positive, but it is very difficult. I don’t know when I will be able to post next but I truly miss talking to all my fellow kidney cancer survivors.
Because of the trauma i have had to stop my chemotherapy, and I am not sure what will happen. Hopefully I will be able to report back with better news soon.
