Is it normal after surgery, 10 days out, to have pain like a dull throb, or to feel like the kidney hits things like your ribs. Its just uncomfortable, but I was wondering if anyone else experiences this? Doc said I will feel more being so young cuz my nerves are more responsive. Though i did notice a numbness in my hip area that comes and goes, assuming there was some nerve damage during surgery. Thanks. Hope everyone is have a good weekend. Today was the first time out of the house since surgery on the 19th, did a little costco run and errands. Now I know was it feels like to be morbidly obese. Back hurts, walk slow, tired easily, not easy to take deep breaths.
