    Surgery

    Procedure or Surgery

    I had surgery removing half my left kidney, two ribs, and all the muscle on my left side. 14 inches of plastic mesh was put in from the middle of my stomach wrapped around my left side to the middle of my back. I will never play basket ball again...or do much housework. I will never be the same but many family and friends are glad I am still here.

    Went as Expected: Strongly Disagree
    Minimal Recovery: Strongly Disagree
    Minimal Side Effects: Strongly Disagree
    Minimal Impact to Daily Life: Strongly Disagree
