Kidney removed a week ago. No pain around wound, extreme bruising & pain on opp side on torso & leg. Ok walking but trouble sitting/lying down.Normal?
Post-op nephrectomy : If your pain and bruising is on the opposite side of the nephrectomy, i would be concerned for a possible retro peritoneal hematoma, essentially a bruise with a collection of blood that may take long to resorb. When you stand up there is less pressure on the nerves running through that space, you will feel it more sitting. Need to talk to your surgeon about this, esp. If you take blood thinners. ...Read more

Why do our kidneys work better when we are laying down!
2nd- When is our BP highest? Sitting Standing, or laying down?
BP should be steady: Regarding our kidneys it does not matter if we lie down or stand up. They function the same irrespective of how we are standing or lying down. The same goes with our BP if we are healthy. If you are healthy BP should not change because the body has systems that keep it in a narrow range. But for some people that system does not work and their BP is normal lying down, but falls as they stand up. ...Read more
