HI !!! I have a ton of questions ! I am a 40 yr old female 8 weeks post op for Left partial RCC T1G2 clear cell no sarcamoid feature tumor.
Every little pain/ ache scares me. I have had a sharp stabbing pain in my head 3 weeks...when is being a hypochondriac not being a hypochondriac? Should I push to have possibility of mets ruled out now? It was a stage 2 only so I would think that would be remote. Should I really push this issue and get lung/ head baseline? MRI or CT ?
I have had major feelings of pressure in my left side more at night which wakes me up and more so when it rains( LOL) I know I am only 8 weeks out but my side gets hard and sticks out during these pressure episodes. Normal swelling?
I had some complications post-op. I needed a foley for a week and my bowels shut down, so I was in hospital for a week longer than expected. I have also had an ongoing UTI since and just finished antibiotics for the 4th course.
