I need advice. Long story short. I have always been an active guy. Military, Spec Ops, Martial Arts, Weight Lifter. I'm a Defense Contractor in Hawaii. I had a motorcycle accident in Jan. I stood up, moved my bike out of the road then the pain hit and I laid in the road and woke up in hospital 3 days later. I had a burst right kidney and a lacerated liver. My right kidney was removed. I was 247lbs of muscle and felt invincible before accident. I lost 22lbs in hospital. All tests came back good and Kidney Specialist said my left kidney is healthy and functioning 100% and picked up the slack and ill have no issues. I'm freaking out cause I lost an organ, lots of weight, my energy level is shot, strength gone and my ab incision hurts when I move or lift stuff. I just hit 6 week post surgery mark. I made myself get out of bed and go back to work 3 weeks early cause I was going nuts sitting around. I stopped pain pills 2 weeks ago cause I hate pills and feeling dopey. How does having one kidney affect your quality of life? How soon till my abs stop hurting so I can get back in gym? Am I freaking out for nothing cause its all new still? I'm sorry I just feel like wow Im vulnerable and can get hurt now and it's messing with my head. Your advice is greatly appreciated and wanted. Please reply!
