Re: 15% kidney function questions
Both answers are sort of right. The one doctor is correct in that once you have significant kidney disease (and at 30% he does) the kidneys cannot be repaired. What the short treatment of dialysis might do is to give the kidneys a bit of a break and a kick start. This may give him some additional time before dialysis is really necessary and then he and his family have the time to get informed and make decisions.
Good luck to you all.
