Advising that Fred Brown underwent a surgery on 14th October to remove a mass on one of his kidneys. Doctors had been aware of the mass for some time, and as it wasn't responding to treatment, decided to operate. It was hoped that the mass could be removed thereby saving the kidney, but sadly, this wasn't so and the kidney was removed. Fred's other kidney isn't doing too well either, and as a result, Fred may have to go onto dialysis.

Fred is in the Greenslopes Hospital in Brisbane and my understanding is that he is in isolation so therefore not taking visitors at the movement. Best to check with the hospital before visiting.

I will endeavour post an update tomorrow.

I was with Fred a couple of weeks ago and he looked good and his spirits were high, but naturally the upcoming operation was weighing heavily on his mind.
