I'm four weeks post partial nephrectomy for a 4.1 cm tumour on the right kidney. Staged T1b , no evidence of any further spead on CT. ( diagnosed incidentally during an ultrasound for possible gall stones )Will have the pathology in a weeks time. Everything post op is fine healing wise, strength recovering day by day. ( 55 years )
My only concern is that I am having mild hot flushing most early evenings for the past few days. Nothing too excessive but noticeable. Has anyone experienced these post op ? I am thinking they may be not op related but due to testosterone levels. I had seminoma 14 years ago which necessitated the removal of my remaining testes, one being removed in infancy, since when I've had daily testosterone replacement therapy by patch and gel. Annual testosterone checks show level is on the low side but within normal range. I'm supposing the op, stress , post op recovery may have put hormone levels out of kilter .
Any thoughts very welcome.
