I’m 33 years old and I have always been healthy. I’ve had about 3 kidney infections in the past 7 years but nothing more. I was recently hospitalized for a kidney infection and they acted like it was no big deal to just spend the night and take iv antibiotics. They told me I have a large staghorn calcus stone and I have some calcium build up on both my kidneys. My GFR was 55. My creatinine was 1.2. My blood pressure has always been great. I’ve been googling and now I’m scared to death. Do kidney stones affect your GFR? Am I considered a CKD patient now? There was talk about removing my entire left kidney. I am just shocked by all of this. I see a specialist June 5th but it’s driving me crazy not knowing. Anyone have any experience in this?
