Left Kidney Problem

Posted by @gswright, Jan 13, 2012

I had a CT scan December 13, 2011 with the dye and contrast. A day after I noticed I wasn’t going to the bathroom as normal. After the second day I wasn’t going at all not even a trinkle. After 5 days I took a water pill and was able to go for that day only. Contacted my doctor and went in tests were ran. I spent 8 days in the hospital with a kidney infection with ecoli bacteria. I was diagnosed with acute renal failure. During my stay in the hospital I was cathed and was only able to put out 10cc’s of urine within the first 24hours. Now I am home and this past week I have noticed I am going only about 3 times a day and it’s not much at all not my norm of about 8 to 9 times. I have been on nothing but water and cranberry juice. Went to doctor yesterday had my creatinine level and BUN level checked my creatinine was a 1.0 it was 0.8 when I left the hospital on the 28th of December and my BUN is now a 6.0 and it was a 12.8 when I left the hospital on the 28th. I am so confused I saw a kidney specialist but I have no answers I don’t know what to do I am afraid that my kidney will shut down again and it will be irreversible. And if they can’t get my left kidney figured out then whose to say my right one won’t shut down as well? I am so SCAAAn_242644 posted:
