Hi this is my first post here so I`'ll give my history first. Diagnosed in June 2013 with probable rcc in left kidney 7cm and possible node involvement. Radical nephrectomy in Aug. Surgeon did not remove any nodes or adrenal gland. Tumor was contained and shrunk to 6 cm after surgery. T1bnxmx. I 've had a good recovery and have felt good . My ct scan is scheduled for Mar 17th.
My concern is I 've been having pain in my right side in back just above my waist and my left side has started to ache constantly above the incision. This morning I discovered a visible protrusion of my left rib. It's quite large but no pain when you press on it. My husband thinks I should see the dr immediately but I m wondering if I should wait for scheduled scan? Has anyone else had a similar experience?
