Hi I had my rh kidney removed by surgery & not by keyhole as my tumour was 15.5 cm & then had a few infections & had to have it reopened again whilst I was in hospital . I have to go to my gp to have dressings changed every day by my Gp practice who are amazing. I'm still in a lot of pain & exhausted all the time as its now 6 weeks after surgery.  I still have a large hole where it easy reopened & it has to heal naturally. Has anyone else come across my situation ?? 

I'm told I will have to take at least 3/ 4 months off work as my job is quite physical & it really worries me .
