Partial Nephrectomy

Hi, I had a partial nephrectomy (keyhole) 3 months ago. Complications in that the tumour took a lot of getting out and I had to have a drain in for 4 weeks and a stent for 2 months (very uncomfortable) The good news was that the biopsies showed that the tumours were benign (I was dancing on the ceiling)

Now 3 months down the road and my question is this: how long does it take for the kidney pain to go. Mine has been constant all the time and only managed with painkillers. As an aside, I seem to have a quantity of bright coloured oil in my urine. Whenever I ask about this, I get blank looks from doctors. I intend taking in a sample next time My visit is due.
