July 2nd will be 4 months since I had a laparoscopic nephrectomy surgery to remove my right kidney. I've been recovering well but have been noticing that the same side pain I had gone into the doctor complaining about before they diagnosed me has returned (text books call the side pain "flank pain"). It's a dull ache on my right back side, just above the wasteline.
I am worried there is a recurrent tumor developing internally at the site where my kidney used to be. However, I'm hoping it is just a normal part of healing. I was thinking maybe has the scar tissue is forming it is causing this pain. Has anyone else experienced this?
