Hey, everyone --
This is Terri. I'm 46, and am one month (tomorrow) post-op after my open radical nephrectomy to remove my left kidney. I am taking Advil for some minor discomfort (mainly where my 10" abdominal incision crosses my c-section scar). For the past week or so, I have just not felt 'well'. I feel very tired & lethargic -- absolutely no energy to speak of. I also have no appetite -- I feel hungry, but nothing appeals to me, and I can't eat more than a few spoonfuls of anything at a time. (I've actually felt like this since surgery, but it seems more pronounced this last week.) It also coincides with the end of my percoset prescription -- not sure if that could be a factor, so I'm mentioning it.
I have a surgery follow-up appt. next week, and am planning on mentioning it then. But you guys are the ones who have been through this, so I'm hoping someone might have some insight.
