Drug interaction/Kidney Cancer

Good evening,
6 weeks ago, I had a partial nephrectomy (right kidney) due to papillary kidney cancer stage 2. My blood pressure prior to the surgery had been inching up and after the surgery it went sky high; today my Dr. prescribed Norvasc 5 mg. Within an hour of  taking the medication, I immediately felt a sharp pain in the area of my right kidney, not painful, but took my breath away, it has continued off and on all day. I have not had any other complications from the surgery and infact my recovery from the surgery has been very good.
I called my Dr, but he is not available, and won't be back into his office until next friday.  Should I continue the medication?
