recent diagnosis

Postby jenny » Sun Aug 30, 2015 8:28 am

My husband has to go for mri for 20cms of cysts shown up in his kidneys. He is just about to take up a contract overseas for 6 months as a professional kick boxer. After doing some internet research i believe we are looking at a diagnosis of pkd. I am worried that he will be told that he has this disease and that he can no longer fight. It would be devestating for him after years of training himself up to this point. Will he have to stop fighting?
