17 years ago I had a hernia done that went wrong. And for 17 years I have been fighting abscesses , infections and now lots of pain. Doctors kept telling me that just deal with it and I would have to take antibiotics for rest of my life. Now this surgeon what's to remove screen and not put one in and not sew me up because now I'm prone to staph infections which I got from the operation 17 years ago. Just keep packing it till it heals. He wants a Ct scan done so ordered blood work which the only thing highlighted was GFR 58. Can I get the Ct done when your GFR is a 58. By the way this surgeon doesn't talk to you only at you and never does he answer a question I have asked. I know get another in one which I have tried but now in in serve pain and can't straighten up at times. I'm taking something called buscom which helps stops the spasms. Theses spasms are increasing to a few times a day. I don't even know what part is spasming. Could all this affect my kidneys? Could it bring my GFR to 58?
Please don't ask me to talk to my doctors. The surgeon won't talk to me about anything. My family doctor just tells me when it gets bad go the the emergency. The er treats you like your a basket case What do I do? I'm in so much pain and I feel very heavy ad pressure and burning in groin area. My hernia is disgusting looking its the size of a grape fruit but shaped like a football on left side. I have a open wound that drains all the time. Which feels like the screen had scratched open and now I'm losing kidney function. I live in Canada every other place thinks we have amazing heath care. We did but now you can't find a doctor who cares about you
Everything I read on line says that leaving it till it causes pain means otherOrgans are Being hurt and basically survival rate is hurt a lot. I need help to understand this GFR 58 can be fixed if i follow a diet or is it going to get worse in time no matter what I do? I don't want to worry My family but I'm really scared that I'm either going to die on the table when they decide to operate or die from kidney failure and no medical people will help me. Any information you have would be a help to me
