I am new to this board, but have searched for a network of kidney cancer survivors, and hoping you can help me out. I am now 27 days afer surgery from my removal of part of my kidney to cancer, but am SO SWOLLEN and feel so TIGHT right now on my side....I am wondering if this is normal for everyone that has had this surgery?
I know they tell you that you have 'gases' in you from the surgery, but this is really frustrating to be so swollen. I feel like I have a basketball on my side..and it is so hard and aching.......each day does get better as far as my movement goes, but this swelling doesnt seem to be going down....any thoughts out there?
