I am desperately seeking answers to anyone that can answer this question , anyone who has any information regarding kidney failure . My father is a 75 year old man . About two years his health decline drastically ! As they admitted him to hospital due to the high amounts of potassium which is a common effect of this illness . Well it started with this then through getting a biopsy of the kidneys and blood work , they found that he had a rare decease, I forgot the complicated name gamapathy something?...plus they found that he had the cell that can cause myeloma (cancer) . He went through a lot ! Basically chronic kidney failure they were at 5%! He began dialasys then they saw that his kidney went up to 10% then they took him off . Though the process I saw him Ill ! He looked sick. Then months go by , doc said if kidneys can maintain at that percentage he won't have to get treatment anymore . Why?! I asked myself ! Symptoms began , nauseous , tired , pale, itching, cold , vomoting , not eating at all! Then again dialysis began , he's now been on it for like maybe 6 months already . He has passed out like two times through the process everything was ok based on exam , only thing pressure was high. They put him on a low b/p med because of kid kidney condition , and well here he is having good days , bad days , in between . Now I know that it varies in each people but if you have any info nothing but the truth about life expectancy due to his age 75, can he live a good life time with treatment ? Or can I expect him to die soon? Any feedback is welcome please . Especially if you're going through this . Thanks .
