I just joined this site because I was browsing for information and found many answers on here. I am a 42 year old woman and I have a 1 inch tumor on my right kidney and it has to be removed. I will be scheduling a robotic partial nephrectomy soon but am really scared. Do you all have any advice or stories that you can share good or bad that will help me know what to expect and how to prepare for life after the surgery. It sounds like I will be out of work for about a month and it will be very painful during the recovery period. Should I be prepared to sleep in a recliner instead of my bed?
Any help would be so appreciated
