blood gfr versus urine gfr
Another situation that I am and would appreciate advice... asked for a more exact gfr rather that the above 60 that I got cuz not feeling well, did the 24 hour urine collection followed by the blood test. My urine gfr came out 62 my blood gfr 57. My dr said I am fine and don't need to be tested for 3 months. My creatine is 1 or 1.1 and has been going up since March. I am really feeling different. The nephrologist I did an email consult with in May said my kidneys were starting to fail as indicated by the protein and creatine levels. Concerned yet felt I could prove him wrong. The creatinine and protein have increased in the two weeks between the last labs and this urine/blood test. Should I insist on another blood draw to check it against or not? I am so tired of having to fight these drs. I still haven't gotten a referral to a neph either.

I had to have a lung biopsy, and I have cancer. A very rare form that doesn't have any standard treatment. There just isn't a lot of case history for this. It is epithelioid hemangio endothelioma. The cancer support group doesn't talk every day. I can understand why. I'm waiting for the oncologist to call back for an appointment, and will hear in the next few days. Who knew. Ha!
It's so hard dealing with pain especially when you don't get any support from the person who your supposed to be closest to. So hard when your trying to deal with pain and that person treats you worse than the pain. Having hard time understanding why. unless you are having a good Day you are treated like crap and they make you feel worthless.
