Colon cancer survivor w/kidney question

Jan 2012 colon cancer surgery for stage 3. 1 node of 27 infected. Completed 12 session of chemo (8/12). Subsequent blood test (psa), CTscans (2) and colonoscopy (1) all clear. Recently feeling pains in my mid back area and then only when standing up our of chair or from getting off floor following stomach exercises (no pain during exercise). Googled back pain and linked with some Kidney articles. I have next doctor visit scheduled in June, but wondering if I should touch base with this symptom sooner. Anyone out there with simliar history or advice?

Re: Colon cancer survivor w/kidney question

It sounds more musculoskeletal since it is brought on by position changes. If you have any urinary symptoms at all, like frequency, urgency, dark urine (blood), burning, fever, etc. I would get in right away. If not, you could probably wait, but if this is causing you anxiety, you could always call for an earlier appointment just to ease your mind.

Thanks for the information....just have the mild back pain...nothing wrong with plumbing yet. June is just around the corner, but I'll keep your valuable feedback in mind.
