Just new labs, creatinine jumped from 7.0 to 8.0, GFR now at 7, access surgery schedule 1st week in Jan. I now get labs weekly.
My question is why I don't feel the symptoms of ESRD. I fatigue after standing too long but I attribute that to a Hgb rate of 8.6, feel okay when taking procrit, which I haven't needed to do in 5 weeks (had readings of over 11). Is there anyone who as experienced this situation. I fear with worsening GFR I will end up in the hospital prior to getting PD catheter. Should I consider moving up the PD catheter surgery,
