The symptoms that you have described dont seem to be related to your surgery or kidney cancer. They are more associated with your urinary bladder where the urine is store before micturition. There are a number of possibilities. It could be a chronic bladder infection, a stone, or worst cancer in the urinary bladder. Certain types of kidney cancers are associated with bladder cancers. These are called transitional cell carcinoma (TCC). If your kidney tumor was a TCC, then the likelihood of a bladder cancer is there. I suggest you get an ultrasound of the abdomen done which should show any such tumor. Also, a cystoscopy (endoscopy through the urinary opening) is advisable. Prostate cancer is a possibility although lower down the cards. If you are above 70 years of age then the risk increases for prostate cancer, in which case you should also get a blood test done called serum PSA.
