in the days/months after my surgery I was here a great deal. I will never forget the support that I have received from everyone. It's been 7 months since my partial nephrectomy in which I found our that I had RCC. Everyone was so warm and welcoming and responsive to my questions.
I went back back to work before I should have, I am a teacher and hated the idea of missing the first week and getting to know my students. I had an amazing support system at work and it hasn't been too bad.
Ive gotten so busy, this cancer has been a wake up call, I spent the last month applying to graduate school, and I begin May 5! I'm so excited, afte that it's med school!
Now ow for my rant, the past few nights I have been having severe pain at my incision and stabbing needle like pain. My mom kept telling me to come ask for advice and I shrugged it off... Well in desperation I googled what to expect 6 months after a nephrectomy and it brought me to a thread on here... Where I should have came from the start. After reading a lot of posts I gather that the pain will last some time, but I guess the question that hasn't been answered is how do I manage this stabbing pain?
