Well my kidneys are rapidly declining in function. My creatinine went up to 3.6 and my gfr is now only 15. I go on Monday to have another fistula put into my arm. I was given lasix but it is not helping at all. My doc is hoping that my fistula has time to strengthen before I need to begin dialysis, which could be in another month or so.I am kind of depressed at the news. It totally stinks, but I am dealing with it. Thanks for the advice everyone.
