Hello- I am new to this forum. I am 47 year old woman. Non smoker and not extremely overweight (I could lose 20 lbs).
I just had a partial nephectomy to remove a 3cm tumor on my left kidney. The surgery was 3 months ago. I was told it was rcc and needed to come for regular follow up ultrasounds to be on safe side. They said it should be fine. I have had extreme pain in my left side for the last 2 weeks. Then I developed this unusual bruise on my back where my left kidney is. I was not hit, bumped or anything. I am very careful. I could not get into to dr to get seen, (whole other problem). The pain was so bad I ended up in ER> . My white blood count in urine was very high. They put me on IV anibiotics right away. I had a kidney infection. While I was in hospital, they did CT scan. I have calcificaitons. They were not there before. Should I be concerned? Could this be the begining of the cancer returning?
