post kidney removal hernia
I had my right kidney removed one year ago (december 2007). The kidney contained a cancer. Thankfully, the growth (cancer) was completely contained and had not spread. All was well, except for a slight bump in the area of the operation scar. That growth (which a doctor told me was a hernia) has since grown. Although there is only very slight pain, there is some discomfort and the lump is unsightly. I exercise three times a week (including weight lifting and threadmill). I will be seeing my doctor in about a month and want to discuss surgery to repair the hernia. How long will hospitalization likely be after such surgery? Recovery time?
Would appreciate answers from anyone who has undergone such a hernia repair procedure.
