Pulse ox low after RPLND
Has anyone has this side effect? Joey is feeling much better in the past 2 days but he still needs 2 LPM of oxygen all the time. As soon as he takes his oxygen out (of his nose) his oxygen level drops from 93 to 80. He is so worried that this will be permanent. We are now 11 days post RPLND. He is off of his pain medications, only advil when needed.
