I had a partial nephrectomy on august 24th. It went ok, 8 days in the hospital and 6 weeks off work. I am back to work and everything is good except that the lower left part of my abdomen is still numb and I am tired a lot. On December 27th I go in for a follow up appointment to see if the cancer has spread to my lungs. I am super worried. Is this common? My cancer was stage 1 level 2 and about 4 centimeters. Has anyone had bad news on the first follow up?
