I'm wondering about scar tissue pain after Kidney Removal?
My left kidney was removed due to Renal Cancer six years ago (2006) and for the last year I've had what feels like kidney pain, except I have no kidney! It's always after I've been laying down (sleeping) on that side for hours of course, but when I wake up my whole side hurts and it's like having one giant tension headache on the left flank complete with tension. I'm going to ask my Doctor about it, but just wondered if anyone else has experienced this or can offer any information? (My surgery was done Laproscopicaly...dragging it out just under my naval, and I have no pain anywhere else except in the flank region.)
