Seven years ago, I had my right kidney removed, and the last time I saw the doctor for that was when he removed the staples. I changed doctors about a year ago, but even the new doctor shows little interest in my remaining kidney. He did order a creatinine test after a CT scan for a fibroid, but that's all. The result was a little elevated, and he took me off Glucophage. I wouldn't worry except that I've gained a lot of weight I can't explain, and I just started having backaches again only now on the left side. I figure you all know and can tell me -- what do you see the doctor for now that you're a survivor of kidney cancer and how often?
