I had a radical nephrectomy of my right kidney in Feb 2008 - Type 1, Stage 2, no infiltration anywhere else. My Dr. said there was no need to check anything until December because he considered me "cured". Being who I am, and not trusting the word "cured" I recently asked my PCP to run blood test to check the remaining kidney. I'm waiting for the results, what should I reasonably expect my creatinine & urea levels to be?
By the way, feeling great, exercising, no signs of trouble (but there were no signs when they found the cancer checking on a hernia). Only issue is with the shooting pain I occasionally get from the incision - I bet that will be around for a while.
