In the past the most common way to remove a Kidney was a technique called an Open Surgery. During an Open Surgery you are put under general anesthesia and the surgeon makes a 6-10 inch incision along the side of your abdomen. “The surgeon may need to remove a lower rib to gain better access to the Kidney (Mayo Clinic Staff).” “Depending on the type of Nephrectomy being performed, the Ureter, Adrenal Gland, and/or the surrounding tissue may also be removed. The surgery may take upto three hours to complete (encyclopedia.com).” An Open Kidney Removal has a lengthy recovery time. It may take a minimum of 6 weeks to partially heal, and those six weeks are painful and tedious.
Opioid therapy was used in three patients (14%). The complications observed in this group were a recurrence of the disc herniation after 18 months requiring surgical treatment in one patient, a seroma that resolved spontaneously with complete recovery in one patient, and a dural tear that resolved with conservative treatment prolonging hospital stay to 48 hours in one patient. When comparing Group 1 (OD) with Group 2 (MED), the only statistically significant differences found were for the following variables: the size of the incision, length of hospi- tal stay, operative time, and immediate postoperative pain at the incision. The two former variables were greater in the OD group (P 0.01 and P 0.05, respectively), and the latter two were greater in the MED group (P 0.01 in both) (Tables 1 and 3). The VAS score (Fig.

At the door of the room there were notice that to use PPE precaution with the other patient sharing the same room of my patient, so I attempted to wash my hands and wear the gloves to get in the room, but my instructor advised me to wear gown too as the MRSA status was not known yet and the other patient is a known case and a nurse came to add the bed number of my patient to the note of using the PPE.
