Six weeks ago today (7/31), I underwent a Laproscopic radical left nephrectomy. A DiVinci robot was used. 6CM tumor. Stage III. I currently am receiving no chemo nor radiation. I am very fortunate that we caught it when we did.
The incision is at about the belt area. I am still tender there. After driving for a couple of hours, or sitting up in a chair, I get some soreness. is this normal? At what point can a patient realistically expect to be free of soreness and tenderness?
