So I had surgery to remove a 3.5cm mass on my left kidney on 29 Dec... It's been 10 days and I feel pretty good. I see the surgeon this Thur (day 14).
I was wondering about post-op kidney pain. I went cold turkey on the percocet on day 6, but by day 8 I was feeling sore (Around the kidney area). I suppose this is normal, but what have other folks experienced? I had to take 1/2 a percocet 2x day -- for a couple more days. Today, I haven't taken any pain meds although I am still somewhat sore.
Prior to surgery I was very active, finishing my first IRONMAN on 20 Nov ... I'm wondering how long before I can start running again (I was told to expect about 6 weeks).
Thanks for any support!!
