Surgery for the partial Nephromty, took out 40% of the kidney. Tumor was the size of a golf ball. Doc said it clearly looked like cancer, now we are just waiting to see the grade and severity. Since they found it so early I am really hoping it is a low grade. Surgery was 3.5 hours. Stayed in the hospital longer than normal because I couldnt find pain meds that worked or didnt make me want to puke all day. So far Tramdol is what I am on. Doc wants me to take mortin or alleve instead to get off the hard stuff and help with inflammation. Which works better for the pain? Luckily they took the drain out cuz that was killing me. Now its just the major incision site that hurts the most. So far no BM movement just gas pains. Haven't been eating much so that will probably happen in a day or so. What was the best thing to do for pain? Any tips or advice is greatly appreciated.
