Chronic pain after partial nephrectomy and UPJ reconstruction?

Posted by @harleymama, Fri, Oct 26 7:52pm

I've had chronic pain (possibly referred) in my back, hips, and thighs after a partial nephrectomy and a UPJ reconstruction. Has anyone else had this? The physical therapist thinks I have scarring that is tethering some nerves.

Hi @harleymama, I see that @therberger wrote about UPJ obstruction in this discussion:
> UPJ obstruction – horseshoe kidney / partial nephrectomy https://connect.mayoclinic.org/discussion/upj-obstruction-horseshoe-kidney-partial-nephrectomy/

With any luck @therberger will return to tell us about the results of his appointment looking into fixing the scar tissue growth.

@harleymama, have you investigated what might be done about the scarring? What options are there?

Right now I'm receiving myofascial release for the scar tissue. I don't know about other options, that's why I posted. I've also sought input from the urologist that performed my surgeries. I haven't heard back from him yet.
