Kidney Tumor

How long does it take to completely heal from kidney surgery. I had a tumor and my right kidney remove at the end of 2010. I STILL have annoying discomfort on that right side and periodically, I get jabbing pain on that side. Is it possible that the tumor or kidney grew back?

If there was quite a bit of scar tissue from the surgery one is likely to have periodic discomfort from this. The kidney would not grow back; once an organ is removed from the body, it does not grow back.

Thanks Georgiagail, On my last MRI, my doc made this comment about the kidney growing back but did not dwell on it because of other concerns. ambieone
