hi, i am 33 years old and had a lupus crisis in july. after spending one month in the hospital, they were not able to save my kidneys. the nephrologist says they function at about 10% (it could be less
i do not know when they actually start the dialysis. i really dont get any straight answer except that function will not come back, and they MUST get the fistula in place. i am very nervous because i have also had one stroke, as well as numerous clots in the upper extremety deep vessels. the surgery has to be done in patient, and they dont know if there is even time for the thing to mature. now they say that in an emergent situation, they will do dialysis in the groin. i am freaking out
this was not supposed to happen to me.
i guess my question is this..at what function did they start the dialysis? i am trying to prepare since i am still working.
any advise would be appreciated.
current creatinine at 4.2. tp/creat ratio is 3.5.
total protein in cup urine is 100+ rbc casts greater than 50
