Hi everyone, this is my first posting and seeing that people are very supportive here, looking for some encouragement. I am having a left radical nephrectomy on the 14 Oct. and I am a wee bit worried. I have underlying health issues, Bronchiectasis, Diabetes, Hypertension, AF and have had a pleural empyema on my left lung, and I am just wondering if anyone could possibly say how I will come out of this after the anaesthesia. This is worrying me more that losing the actual kidney itself. I don't really react very well to the after-effects of anaesthesia. Hoping someone can put me at ease and allay any fears that I have.
