I don't see the post I wrote last week so I'll post it again. I got very depressed the past couple of months and did not stick to the diet totally.
I said I thought I had found a lump on my left side and it got so painful after having an x Ray that showed nothing. I was supposed to have an ultra sound on kidney and bladder and chest advised from New kidney Dr. Because I had such pain on left side I had to call an ambulance and they did all those tests at the hospital. It seems I was having muscle spasms. They gave me meds and now they are gone.
Now, the good news . The Dr. talked to me at the hospital and said, all your tests are normal. I said what about my kidneys. He said going off the Arthritis meds, there is no sign of kidney disease. They're normal. I couldn't believe it. He said over the years the Arthritis meds were causing my kidneys to shut down. Thank you Lord. I may be in pain without Arthritis meds and have to use my walker all the time
but it is worth it.
I pray for all of you suffering from this terrible disease and be sure to check your meds and what ones could be hurting your kidneys. I'm sure your Dr will. I am one of the lucky ones that the Dr. caught this before I got worse.
I will be checking in to see how everyone is doing and say prayers for all of you.
