I’m 61 years old and had a radical nephrectomy (left kidney) seven weeks ago because of a tumor (benign) and last week had labs that showed creatinine of 1.9. My doc (the surgeon) told me that I need to have more labs in 5 months and that if the creatinine was any higher I would have a problem and have to go on a “horrible” low protein diet. I asked him if the chances were good that the number would be stable and he looked away from me and said there was a chance, but he wasn’t convincing. He also told me I could eat what I want, and I eat healthily and watch the protein, but not a kidney specific diet. Now my right side aches sometimes and I’m worried that it’s my one and only. If the number is higher than the 1.9 will it mean CKD? And does that mean that eventually I will I end up on dialysis? Should I go on a more restrictive diet until I have labs? Thank you for reading.
