Kidney failure(1 Post)
Hi, I’m trying to find out what CKD is all about as my mum has just been admitted to hospital with ‘kidney injury’. I’m a bit clueless about what questions to ask and how to interpret answers. Mum’s been under the doctor for several years with bladder problems. She’s had cystoscopies and had cancerous growths removed, she is often incontinent, has trouble every night with pain in bladder and back. She’s had many many tests and at last she’s been admitted in a UK hospital. The only thing I’ve heard from hospital is that her Creatinine level is over 200. I don’t know what that means.
