Getting to "normal" post RPLND
I had a question regarding how long it takes to get back to "normal" post a RPLND procedure. I just completed 3 months since the operation. I have been back at work for the last 2 months and can do most things - but still don't quite feel all of "it" is quite there.
I dont feel any pain most of the day - but when I get into bed I have trouble sleeping. I feel incision pain and it takes me a while to knock off. Occasionally, I feel like something just "moved" in my stomach - I don't mean gas - I literally mean it feels like my internals moved. Maybe I am going crazy!
Anyway, I thought I would reach out and ask what experiences you all may have had.
