It has been 1 year since I had a full nephrectomy. I still have severe flank pain so my family dr did another CT scan and it showed a hematoma has formed in the place of my kidney. Has anyone else had this? I also have an ovarian cyst which they are removing this week to see if my flank pain could be referred pain from that. But, if my pain doesnt go away my Dr said they might have to go in and biopsy the hematoma to make sure that it is a hematoma and not something else? My nephrectomy was not needed.... had a false ct/mri reading which said I had a tumor but I didnt. I had a healthy kidney removed. Now.... the statement of "to make sure that is what it is" kinda scares me. Could have my dr removed my kidney and left the tumor? Anyhow.... if you have any info or if you developed a hematoma after your surgery ... I would greatly appreciate knowing what was done for you. Thanks in advance.
