So my boyfriend went to the Dr today; he got really bad news. He just called me a few minutes ago telling me that his kidneys are going bad... Has anyone ever dated or has a friend or family member that has had this?? He's 22 years young.. He's telling me not to worry about it & that we'll get thrut his... He's like we can get a kidney transplant and stuff. I'm sooo worried... Any advice or anything that helped you?? I'm really extremely worried and I love him sooo much!! We have a whole future planned and I'm so scared of death of losing him... Please help me!!
Did they say why his kidneys are going bad? My daughter has chronic kidney failure secondary to another diagnosis. Her kidney function is around 75% and she is fine. Prayers for you and your boyfriend.
My grandmother has chronic kidney failure. She has to be on these medicines but she is fine as well.. you also have to get the functoion of his kidneys and find out the options of treatment. also get another diagnoses from a different doctor and ask how bad it is.
It really just depends on what exactly is going on with the kidney's. My mom was hospitalized back in August for cellulits. They were giving her such a high dose of diuretics IV that it affected her kidney function. Her kidney function is now almost back up to where it was before she was hospitalized. I have a friend who has decreased kidney function for over a decade. They just keep an eye on it and he's done pretty good with it so far.
