GFR after nephrectomy
My GFR hovers around 57-58. I had a nephrectomy May 2019 for renal cell carcinoma. I still don’t have the energy level I had prior to surgery. It’s been 5 months and my doctor said my energy level would be back but couldn’t say when. I have always been very active. I work full time. I have a very active dog. I walk him but I find that I need to rest up more. I am still wondering whether I need to see a nephrologist. None of my doctors have a straight answer. I am told people do well with a solitary kidney. My lab work is normal except for the sl decrease in GFR. I notice less energy. Also I spoke to a nutritionist at my cancer center and was told I should get all the nutrients I need from a good diet and don’t need a “special “ diet. Reduce salt intake. Limit drinking alcohol, I don’t drink much at all. Any post nephrectomy people out there with any thoughts/ advise?
