It has now been almost 4 weeks since I have an open radical nephrectomy on my right kidney. The incision site is still tender and not healed up completely. My back has been bothering me quite a bit on my shoulders and all down the left side of my back because I still lean slightly towards my right side (because it still hurts to stand straight). I was thinking about going to a registered massage therapist to help me with this, but I dont know if it is a good idea as my side has still not fully healed. Does anyone have any advice, or have you had any experience with this? THe last thing I want to do is cause more pain then I already am in.
