I was wondering if you can steer me in the right direction.
I had a radical, open nephrectomy on June 20 this year, and the tumor was a Grade 2 RCC.
So, im about 5 weeks out.
I cant take the pain.
I still take Oxycotin at night and just paracetomol during the day.
I have the most horrible pains in my back and the pain around/ in/ under the wound/ scar is so sore... sometimes its really sharp.
I know its going to be sore for a while. But sometimes it hurts so much its hard to walk.
I sneezed twice and even though I brace for it i feel it rip right through me.
Everyone wants/ expects me back at work, telling me I "look fantastic" but i tell you I dont feel it.
Is this normal? When does the pain go away?
