Re: please help if you can
i don't have what you have going on but i do have vascular issues along with also just having a kidney and a liver disease. if this was actually that many years ago,you really DO need to get an ultrasound done on the kidneys at this point, just to see what is actually still flowing thru that artery. i am just assuming here that the original issue was also discovered with an ultrasound? the ultrasound with that doppler tool they use,really does check bloodflow thru organs really well. you simply need that comparative study done now just to see how much, if any, this maybe has progressed.
the kidneys also play a huge part in governing our BPs too,so if your BPs are becomming involved as well,it REALLY is needed now(the US). what are your BPs like right now,what is the average "norm" for you at this point,and how were they before this? since this has simply been a matter of years since this was checked on,it really needs that follow up at this point since alot can change even in as little as six months time with certain conditions,years? well,it just needs to be done ya know? you just NEED to know where that kidney is at with the bloodflow and any possible damage becasue of it that could have also occured with impaired flow to any organ,if this truely is going on right now. this is exactly what any good ultrasound will show you, blood flow and any possible damage. getting your kidney labs run as well right now wouldn't hurt either.
did your doc,upon finding out about this artery problem actually refer you to a good nephrologist or is your primary handling all this for you still? please keep me posted on things,but DO get that follow up US done,it REALLY is needed. **
