About 6yrs ago they found a 'lump' under my liver that was tender and sensitve...my Doc freaked out and sent me for a scan. My radiologist discovered that my right kidney had 'migrated ' up to my liver and was snuggling up behind and beside it.
Was told that they didn't know how or why but that it can happen, it just 'is' and that it would migrate back to its original spot without any problem.
With this last occlusion they did a scan and found that it was still there, taking over the spot where my galbladder used to be and was somewhat enlarged.
It is very sensitive and tender to the touch. (I guess that you are not supposed to be touching your kidneys.)
The whole area has been painful since the occlusion and the doctor still cannot touch me there without my screaming...the rest of my belly is fine, no pain. Just that spot.
Could someone please tell me if you have ever heard of this happening? Why does it happen? Could it be that things got shifted around in there during surgery?
Is it supposed to hurt so much? Can it cause any problems being up there? Doens't it pull on the canal or duct or whatever is anchoring it or were it is leading to?
I wouldn't really care (haven't really thought much about over the years) but now it is very painful. Feels like my galbladder grew back and it taking its revenge.
