My good friend had her kidney removed because of cancer a couple of months ago. The doctor never told her what stage cancer she had. I told her she should of asked. But she states the doctor did give her 80 - 85 % chance of being cancer free in five (5) years. She goes back for her follow up in April and has asked me why she hasn't been put on any medication? Also seems that she may have a hernia from the surgery. She also said that she is getting a sharp pain on the side where the kidney was removed. Her other kidney seems to be functioning fine. Anyone have any suggestions on what I should say to her?
