Hello!

this is my first post. It has been 5 weeks since I had a partial nephrectomy. My recovery has been generally ok but I keep getting waves of nausea coupled with dizziness. The wave I’m currently in has been going on for a couple of days.  Has anyone experienced the same?

  • Hi, i had nausea severe nausea in hospital after my operation but that was found to be internal bleeding. I had a further operation ( embolisation) which found one of my arteries had a bleed. After this the nausea stopped. I would definitely contact your kidney nurse and discuss it and maybe get checked out.  Take care x

  • I had the same symptoms resulting in emergency surgery for internal bleeding and 2 large pseudo aneurysms. This can be very serious so please do get checked. All the best x

  • Thank you for replying. Sorry that happened to you!
    I was rushed to hospital about 2 weeks as when I described my symptoms they were worried that I had internal bleeding but all scans came back fine. They said I might have had a virus but it’s happening again 2 weeks later.

    So frustrating  

  • Hi Suzy,

    that sounds terrifying. I hope you’re ok now.

  • Hi how are you doing now? Any more nausea ? x

  • It has eased thankfully. I’ve got a gp appointment on Friday and then I’ve got an appointment with a kidney specialist on Monday. Will get to the bottom of it 

  • That’s great to know. Let us know how you get on x
