While having an MRI scan it was discovered purely by chance that I had 2 Tumors in my right kidney,I had the Kidney removed using key hole surgery. After leaving hospital after 3 nights I went home feeling okay. Unfortunately after 10days of feeling poorly one of my entry points burst as was infected, approx 100mils not very nice fluid was taken out and I was back into hospital for another 3 nights on an intravenous antibiotic drip.the infection was about 4 weeks coming right as the wound closed very slowly. My experience with the whole situation has not been good with some very strong anxiety attacks, sometimes 3-4 times a day. I am also extremely tired a lot of the time despite reasonable sleep,approx 3x2hours per night. I have a pain around my right shoulder blade that cannot be explained, this despite a bone scan and Xrays.It's been three months since the operation and still extremely anxious, tired and still have the shoulder pain. I am lead to believe the recovery differs from patient to patient. I would like some feedback on my situation please.
