Hi there. I'm new here, but have a question. I'm 26 years old and am 3 years post op. I had a full right nephrectomy after being diagnosed with Renal Cell Carcinoma ( kidney cancer ). I am still in constant pain. The doctors say that it's because all of the nerves in my abdomen were cut during surgery, and in hopes of finding the other end of the nerve, they send out constant pain signals. None of the nerve blockers have worked, and am currently taking a slew of pain medication to be functional. Has anyone else had this or a similar problem??? Thanks!
