I am two weeks post partial nephrectomy for a 1.5 cm clear cell renal cancer. (stage T1a/grade 2) Surgery went well, recovery at home going pretty well, had blood pressure spikes, some back pain, still feel "woozy " at times. I knew about the tumor for a year, it is very dificult to accept that this was actually a cancer. I am saddened even though the doctor says recurrence rates are very low, it is still a shock. I was laid off from my job shortly before the surgery, will have to look for another one when I am better. How long did it take people to drive a car after surgery? What were your experiences in accepting the cancer?
Thanks a lot.
