I had a robotic partial nephrectomy on Aptril 11th and am now scheduled for blood work, chest x-ray and CT Scan on October 21st, After the nephrectomy I had a lot of problems with bleeding and was taken in to the hospital 4 times and finally underwent surgery again and they put 13 coils around the kidney to stop the bleeding. I am extremely nervous about the upcoming tests as I have been having pain in my side for the past two weeks. Nothing I can't live with but enough for me to know something is not right. I was told that it could be scar tissure. Any thoughts about what could be going on? Thanks so much!
