Unhappy kidney cancer

My father-in-law just had surgery 5 days ago and had his kidney removed due to a tumor the size of a football.. They said it had been there probably at least 5 years. Anyway, now he is still in the hospital he is having hallucinations and is not really "with-it". Is this normal? He hasnt hardly eaten anything and its been 5 days.. its really got us bothered and I dont see anything online about these types of problems.

Hi, my husband is a survivor of renal cell caricoma, it's been almost 7 yrs.
I would wonder about the medication your father-in-law is on. I know when hubby was going through this there was almost a week that he hallicated because of the pain medication. Some people have a hard time with this. If he is receiving IV this will help from dehydration and hopefully his appetiate will come along. Recovery is slow but hopefully they have got it all. Good luck.
