I went on Thursday to have my MRI and Chest X ray. The Urologist that I have been with the whole time said all looks good and that 5 years is a good mark. He also said that starting next year I will just have a chest x ray and the following year an MRI and chest x ray. Does anyone know the protocol for follow up after 5 years. He said that it looks good and not to loose sleep worrying, but that I will always have to keep it in the back of my mind to follow up yearly. Also, He asked if I ever had pain on the side (left) that the kidney was removed from? I actually do have aches and pains there off and on. I just thought it was old age.....(I'm 52) and needed to learn to deal with it. He told me that the scar tissue can be really sensitive and this is not uncommon. Does anyone else feel pain on the side where their kidney was removed? Other then that I feel all is good. If anyone can shed light on further follow up that would be wonderful.
Be Well and Be Happy!
