I am 39 years old and I was recently diagnosed with a T1 Renal Tumor. I am scheduled for a laparoscopic radical nephrectomy the end of April. I have found multiple blogs about open nephrectomies but not many from people who have undergone a lap procedure. Can anyone give me some information about what to expect post-operative? Also, my urologist said I did not require any additional testing for mets because the rest of my abdominal CT was clean and I am not completely comfortable with that. This tumor was missed on a CT I had 2.5 years ago and I don't want them to miss anything else.
Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.
