Hello to all and thank you for all your informative posts! I'm a newbie to ckd but have been reading all your posts along with trying to educate myself to this disease. I see a nephrologist tomorrow, and I'm hoping to find out results on the renal ultrasound I had a month ago along with the stage. My egfr is 46 with a question mark? With all the symptoms I've been having for months, it seems I'm stage 4 and 5? I do have other diseases that might be making my symptoms worse but I'm hoping to find out more tomorrow. This is scary stuff and my anxiety is higher than ever! Depressed too but the anxiety is the worst with something like this. Thanks to all for the excellent reads. I'll post again when I find out more.
