My wife was diagnosed with Stage 4b renal cell carcinoma that had spread to her spine and adrenal gland. They removed her left kidney adrenal gland and 2 vertebras what is the prognosis for reoccurrence of the cancer once it has gone this far?

In brief: Renal carcinoma

Unfortunately, a stage "4B" renal carcinoma denotes metastatic disease which generally is not a favorable prognosis.
An oncologist is probably in consultation with the surgeon who performed the surgery, and is the one best suited to give you correct information regarding your wife's condition.
