Hi I have joined here for some much needed advice please!
I am a 27 year old female , in August 2016 I was rushed to hospital with sepsis and was very poorly ! It is unknown how I got sepsis , although whilst being treated in hospital I has severe left sided kidney pain and could barely move! I was told I had a kidney injury.
When I left hospital my GFR and creatinine were all in range. GFR over 90. The back pain went off after 2 weeks of being discharged from hospital.
November or 2016 I was still having checkups with dr and I complained of the back pain I experienced in hospital returning but not a sharp pain this time just a dull ache. He did some blood tests and it came back my gfr was 60 & creatinine 101.
This blood test was repeated 4 weeks later (I was advised to drink lots of water ) my results this time was that my gfr was 59 and creatinine 103. I had 2 water infections after these tests and my back pain continued over Xmas and new year. I didn't drink any alcohol over the Xmas period.
I have recently had another blood test (January 2017 ) my GFR is now 56 and my creatine is 108.
I still have the back pain and blood in my urine when dipped by dr and now my periods have become erratic with regular spotting through out my cycle ! I have been referred to the urologist as urgent and will be seeing him on Monday (20th Feb)
I would like to know if anyone has had the same experience and if I should be worried ? I am a healthy 27 year old with a young child I work in the hospital and am able to access my results so I have seen that my gfr was not low prior to sepsis.
