It's all a bit too much!

I am generally a very positive person, take more or less everything in my stride, especially when it comes to my health. However sometimes it get a bit much, it feels like someone up there is testing my breaking point, by adding yet another health issue! A STROKE!! I am 31 and in Oct 2015 I suffered...

Stage 4 and feeling crap!

sure if my feeling so rubbish and lousy is down to my CKD. I am currently at 24% (has steadily decreased from 34% in a year) I know a lot of people I talk to say, say they are at 15% a lower before they feel 'symptoms' so I am not sure if I am just run down or whether it is really down to my kidneys...

Re: new stage 4 kidney patient

Hello, I am 30 with two children and also have stage 4 CKD. I have always known my kidneys were bad, as I had a birth defect. My kidneys have progressively got worse the older I have got. Last year my kidneys took a nose dive, which sparked the living transplant process and that knocked me sideways....

Re: Kidney Scan - When will I know?

Thank you. I had my scan, and I did ask out right and she did tell me a lot of stuff. She said that it didn't appear to be any worse than before, and then got me to go to the loo and scanned me againa and said it also appeared as though some urine was going back in to the kidney indicating a slight ...

Re: Anxiety on the lead up to appointments!

Had my appointment I had to do an MSU as I might have an infection. I advised of my BP and I have to go back in two weeks. I am sort of hoping it's just an infection and a quick course of antibiotics to fix it. Fingers crossed it's nothing worse and that my kidneys maintain their current function

Re: Anxiety on the lead up to appointments!

Thank you, my appointment is today, I checked my blood results and they actually seemed fine, but the ALB was lower than normal, and I think I am correct in thinking that means I am leaking a fair bit of protein? My back has been killing non-stop and I have been feeling sick, last night I went to be...

Anxiety on the lead up to appointments!

My appointment is Monday 8th and as per usual I am getting anxious again. My last appointment went really well, then I was due an appointment in Aug which got post...

Heat causing swelling?

Lately I have noticed my legs feeling really big by the end of the day. Even my feet look puffy! My calves can swell up to an inch each in a day! I have never really had this before and of course I will mention it at my renal appointment, but just wondered if the heat can cause this, or am I kidding...

But because at the minute i...
