I have read quite a few posts and some horor stories and all that but to be honest I am tired, and finally decided to just post my issue and see what help I can get.
I had open partial nephrectomy removed part on the right side. after reading I feel lucky to only have a 9 inch incision site. This was done back on Jan 8th so I guess 20 days agao. I do not have any real pain at this point. What I do have is a bloated preasurized something where my belly / abdomen used to be. Doc said it was normal but offered no way to help this go away, nor how long it would take for it to go away. This thing infront of me still makes noises that make me think that a kracken is about to be released. It makes moving an effort. I understand the part that is numb, I mean they cut the nerves and all that. But again no indication of how long that will last either.
So can some one please shine any light on how long my abdomen will feel like there is something up in there? or how long the numbness will last i would be every so greatful. A light at the end of this tunnel to look forward to would help me so much.
