I am a 46-year old woman who was diagnosed and surgically treated for stage T1b RCC in November 2008. I had my 2-year check up and all was clear (Thank God!) However, I continue to have lower quadrant pelvic pain and no one can tell me why. I've been told it's probably "muscular." Of course I can't help but think that his pain is recurrent disease and they just can't find it. I've read all the stats about stage one kidney cancer cure rates and the prognosis is good, but I can't help but wonder if it will return. Anyone have good info recurrence rates for stage T1b specifically or experience with lower left quadrant pain (hip/pelvis area) after left nephrectomy?
