Post Kidney Cancer Surgery Expectations

University Hospitals Seidman Cancer Center Helps Patients Recover From Kidney Cancer Surgery

Once a surgical procedure has been selected for kidney cancer treatment, the medical team at UH Seidman Cancer Center's Urologic Oncology Center strives to educate the patient regarding how the procedure could affect his or her post-surgery lifestyle.

While individual reactions from patients may vary depending on the stage and type of kidney cancer and the surgical procedure used, there are a few general side effects that patients should be aware of during the recovery period. Patients with additional questions about severe or bothersome symptoms should contact their UH Seidman Cancer Center surgeon.
