Post-transplant large bump - Hernia??
So, I am 3 months post-kidney transplant. Lots of ups and downs, but making progress. I have this huge abdominal mass. With my loss of weight, it is kinda obvious. So, It may be a hernia at the graft site. My doctors says if it is a hernia, it will involve surgery and not to even worry about it for 6-12 months. I have had enough surgery for the time being.
As I know nothing about such hernia's, hopefully some of you can fill me in. How common? Alternatives to surgery? what does the surgery entail - and how debilitating? When did you get it done? What questions should I be asking my team?
