I had a gallbladder attack on 11-13-13 and a CT was done where they found a very large Right kidney mass (ended up being 12.5 cm). So I had and open cholesctomy and radical nephrectomy with embolization of the mass prior to surgery. The mass was into my vena cava which was resected also. This was done on 11-21-13.
I have done well home in 5 days, but I have no stamina, I am so tired. I"m also concerned I have a follow up CT on 2/24, the margin of the vena cava was not clear. My urologist who is the BEST, after reading the report, went and view the mass himself, he moved the CT up by 3 months.
I go back to work next week which is 8 weeks feel like I'm a slacker since I have read some of you going back sooner.
