I was talking to a urologist I work with ( he asked how my kidney were now doing) and I told him that my egfr has decreased to 25. To which he replied "what was the result of your kidney biopsy?"
I told him I have never had one and he seemed very suprised by this as my ckd is caused by reflux which as this consultant says "once the damage is done by reflux it will not get worse"
He told me I need to ask for a biopsy as this should have been done a long time ago but doesnt want me to mention he told me as this will cause difficulties between him and my nephrologist as they also work closely.
How can I ask for a biopsy without sounding like ive been told too?
Feel a bit awkward now and dont know what to do.
