Acute Renal Failure
I was addicted to pain killers for 15 years. I have been clean for almost 3. I went to the hospital last January for stomach pain and at 3:30 am a nurse woke me up and said "you are here for kidney failure" ???? WHAT NO..but they did some blood work and yes i have/had acute renal failure. I have the puffy red legs ,i am 5 foot 10 inches tall and weigh 210 #s I am now getting bad back pain when i walk...flank pain,mostly on the right side,hurts bad but when i sit down it goes away. Anyone have any thoughts on this ? I can sure use some help as i am in the dark with this,i am reading all the info i can find.
I go for new blood work in the morning. My cre whatever level was a 2.1,i hear thats a lil high. Any help here ??? Thank you
