I am 2 weeks out from a partial nephrectomy on the right side. My recovery has been pretty typical until a few days ago when I started to have some diarrhea. It has persisted for about 5 days now. Also, I had some oozing from one of my incisions. I called the doctor who had me send him a picture and he wasn't too concerned given that my urine output was good and I wasn't experiencing any back pain. Also, he didn't think the incision looked infected at all. Has anyone experienced anything similar? I have a sensitive stomach (irritable bowel syndrome) but I'm wondering how long I should put up with this diarrhea before calling the doctor back.
