I've read many posts on people's physical journeys from discovering cancer and the resulting rush for major surgery. I am now 3 weeks post radical nephrectomy for a 4cm chrcc. The pain had eased up and I'm getting out and about, although I still tire easily. I have been really positive and dealt with each hurdle well. I didn't even cry when I found out it was cancer. I guess I just focussed on what needed to be done.
However, the last few days I have felt extremely irritable and emotional. I have had bouts of crying and started a fight with my partner. Has anyone else experienced these emotions? Do they last? Three of my incisions have split open and I was devastated yesterday (definite overreaction). I guess I just want to know if what I'm experiencing is normal.
