Just had surgery last Thursday and am questioning pain?
I had a laparoscopic partial nephrectomy last Thursday. The surgeon
Had some trouble controlling the bleeding and had to "open me up"
To reach in and stop it. Leaving me with an additional 4" incision across my upper
Abdomen. I was released after a couple days in the hospital
And I'm still in considerable pain? I'm not a wimp or new
To surgery pain, but I can barely walk. I read all I could find about this surgery and was
Not expecting it to be quite this bad?
Or do you think the surgeon "opening me up"
Is making it a lot worse?
