Nope, me either. LOL
I'm nearly 7 months post-op. Will this beautiful, huge bulge on my side ever go away? I'm thinking no. Oh well, I'll consider it my battle scar if it doesn't. From a vanity point of view, I look a little lopsided now. I didn't plan on doing any Sports Illustrated swimsuit covers anytime soon, though, so I guess I can live with it. :oD
I've never gotten a tatoo in my life, but if I thought I could stand the pain, I think sometimes about getting a kidney cancer survivor ribbon tatooed over my bulge and scar. Just in case it ever thought about coming back, that might discourage it. ;o)
Also, if I'm on my feet for more then an hour which is pretty much all the time, my side bulges out more and I have this sensation like someone has their fist in their, trying to push from the inside out. Does anyone else have this? It also happens after I eat. Very strange feeling.
