my husband had a partial nephrectomy in Jan last year. We are coming up on one year Anniversary and the swelling and pain in his side. The bulging where he feels like his insides are falling out. All the while, his drs all said well I m not a "muscle dr" ! it s just the muscle healing. I see him suffer every day, working, pushing through. And no one validates our opinion that something is NOT RIGHT. We have used our intuition more than once and it was right on. I know this time it is too. I m so frustrated and not sure where to turn. We have a new dr appt in a couple of weeks, but we know it won't "cure" this part of post op issues. Anyone else have issues like this after surgery? I ve read a lot of people do. Thank you for reading my vent, and hugs to all fighting this battle.
