Talking Recovering From Acute Kidney Disease

On 11/14/10 I was admitted to hospital with renal failure due to urinary obstruction. Creatinine level was 8.5. Catheter places and next morning I was at 6.8. Had operation to prostate to stop blockage. Held at 4.5 for several weeks and then, last summer, went to 2.9 where I have lingered since. I feel fine and doc sees no need to panic. Everything working well. My question. Here I am 14 months later. Is it possible to still see more improvement or can i expect to stabilize or maybe get worse?

Re: Recovering From Acute Kidney Disease

Things are never consistent with kidneys. It is very possible that you will continue to be stable for a very long time. With cr. at the level you are at there is some damage, but not so horribly severe that it will necessarily affect you. On the other hand, if you get another blockage or if you get some sort of virus and get sick and dehydrated, you may drop in function. So be careful to stay healthy and hydrated. With luck and good care (watch your blood pressure and cut back on salt) you will stay stable for a long time.
