I had a partial Nephrectomy back in Dec. 2009 since then I have had a bulge(swelling)on my right side where the surgery was done. At first I thought it was normal part of the process. Today I saw my Urologist and he said it was a Hernia. He explained although not common, because of the loose muscle due to the surgery it can become herniated. He said it mostly affects older men ( I am 65 years old) and although now it is mild, eventually I will need surgery to repair it. Anyone have this experience?
