Diagnosed with stge 5 renal failure…gfr has been 13 now 6 plus weeks. Doctor says last week its death or dialysis!!! No option, waited on 2 units of blood and additional bloodwork this week. GFR show 16 ….how can this be? I urinate lots have limited swelling is this normal, should I give in and have dialysis. I was appalled when she suggested hospice or pallative measures.
