Stage 3/4 Kidney disease: I need support before my appointment
I got diagnosed with stage 3 to 4 kidney disease about 3 months ago. Although my GAF was around 30 all others measures were well within appropriate limits. I asked my nephrologist why this had happened as i’ve Always been healthy and all previous blood work over the years had been good. (I’m 71 years old). He said he had no idea why and at that moment I decided to try and get a second opinion at the Mayo Clinic. The appointment I was given was for 3 months in the future and is now 2 weeks away. I’m asking for some words of encouragement from anyone who has been down this road. I have no idea if i’ll Have a future and if so, no idea at all what it might look like. Now that my appointment is only 14 days away, my anxiety level is definitely on the rise. Thank you for anything you can do.
