I know this is a pretty difficult question with lots of variables (ie. age, condition, tumor, size of incision, type of work, etc etc). But if you had an open partial nephrectomy (or even a radical), how long before you went back to work?
I am on my feet all day, and I do a lot of twisting, bending, pulling, pushing, etc.
Just wanted an idea of how long it took everyone. I have asked for 8 weeks, but my doctor said I would only need 4 to 6 weeks. I was surprised by that after the posts I have read on here.
