I am scared....New diagnosis of kidney cortex thinning

I started out with pain/pressure in back on the right side at 4 weeks ago and nausea. I was scheduled for an ultrasound the same day, I had to wait for the results to be reported to my doctor before I could leave. Shortly after the ultrasound I was told that a CT scan was ordered and would have to wait for them to come get me. My doctor call me in radiology and told me that I needed a Nephroloist.I was recently diagnosed with Cortex thinning. It sometimes happens when there is a UJO (uteteropelvic junction obstruction) which is what has happened to me. The kidney needs the Cortical or Cortex. Once this has thinned out or is thinning out means that the kidney is not functioning. My CT scan reveled very marked hydronephrosis on the right kidney with a very thin cortex. I work for a nephrologist who explained it to me as a kidney with no function. My creatinine is 1.2 but my GFR is less then 55. Which for me means I have CKD3 (Chronic Kidney Disease Stage). For me I am also a diabetic and I have High Cholestrol and Hypertension. I am trying to get everything under control.
