Hi, I'm new to this site and have been looking for some advice. I am 48 and I was diagnosed with RCC ( 2.5cm tumor, left lower kidney) mid-December 2012 and I am due for a open partial nephrectomy on 1/17/2013. Can anyone give me some sound advice on what to expect for the surgery and what to expect when I come home. Also, what type of meds will I need to take after surgery, with the exception of pain meds. Thank you.
