Seeding from Biopsy!

Hi all, I haven't been on here in a while, I will bring you up to date, I am 44 years old, diagnosed with KC with mets to the lungs, have been on clinical trial with Torisel, did really well, lung mets shrunk 80% I was happy, had my Kidney removed 4 weeks ago, not as scary as I pictured it in my mind, but for past 15 weeks, have been complaining about my right side, just after biopsy of my kidney 15 weeks ago, I noticed a bump on my right side of my waist, right almost where you would bend to your right side, this area has given me lots of pain, I went to doctor's and was told it was an "imflammation" but the area kept getting worse and worse, I will take you back to when I had my biopsy, the man who did it took 5 needle biopsy's of my kidney, but on #4 he said to me, whoops, sorry, I missed, his missed caused me an intense amount of pain, but not knowing any different I sucked up the pain and never thought about it again until a short while ago, getting back to my right side, I had ultrasounds done, everyone still kept saying imflammation, then as I said weeks ago, I am in hospital to get my kidney removed then after surgery I hear from my doctor that my right side is a tumor that is wrapped around my nerves and that is the 1st time I hear the word "seeding" being used regarding me, scary, I thought that it was 100% not a chance, never happened in 50 - 60 years, modern medicine it just doesn't happen, right??? wrong, it happened to me, then I hear, well you will be in the medical text books now cause we don't understand why this has happened, oh my god, come on, why me? isn't it enough that I have to fight KC with mets to my lungs now some "man made seeding happens and I have to fight this tumor on my right side now"? and now from that I have my thyroid that is swollen, doctor suspects that it may be a tumor on that too, but not sure yet, I have a bump on my
back, doc thinks that it may be a tumor now too, its like what is happening to me and why? Can anyone shed some light? pls, I am now back on treatments of Torisel, they tell me that now the kidney is gone they hope the rest of the tumors will dissolve since there is not the main one left to feed the little ones, so now I think I should only have the lung mets to fight that should be it, so why do I have these other things, can someone please answer me. thank you
