              yup, my dad did experience that he was 62 years old, he went to the doctor and its not a very comon side effects but usually happen in males in their late 50s.  I think you tried most of technique to reduce pain, not sure if this one would help, i got my dad a mineral salt, so he fill the tub with warm water and put ~ 1 cup of mineral salt, it did help him to relax the pain in foot and ankle

                dont worry, 2.5 cm isnt that large, even if it goes to 4 cm you are in stage 1, and the recovery will take couple weeks, but you can walk kinda normally you would atill feel small amount of pain in the surgery area cause it consider major surgery to remove a kidney, and my advice to you is to remove the whole kidney and not partial, partial remova l has a higher chance of recurrence.  please dont stress yoursel...

                  it will take couple months, my dad had surgery removing his kidney, and he kept feeling pain in the surgery area, it took for him couple months to feel normal again, if you think about it, its a major surgery, just give it time and do some light exercises

                      I live in Canada too, my dad had kidney cancer started from stage 2 to 4 within 2 years.. go to your doc and ask him for scan but it might take long time to do the scan cause of the waiting list, my 2 cents go to private scan if the waiting is long, we went to Mayfair diagnostics for CT scan it cost us ~ 850 CAD, and you have to see oncologist and start treatment asap, in my dad case, same like your situation, the ur...
