Finally got the results of my kidney biopsy. Doctor called me this morning and told me there is no sign of disease on my biopsy. What the heck does that mean?
Let me refresh you guys. Diagnosed CKD stage 3. 44/F. Ultrasound in Jan showed no signs of disease. July 2020 was my very first GFR score.
July 2020 -GFR 60
Sept. 2020 GFR 57
Jan. 2021 GFR 56
April 2021 GFR 58
Back in January nephrologist told me that he would like to do a biopsy to find the cause of my CKD. He said sometimes there is no cause, when I saw him again in May he said based on my GFR declining slowly he predicted it would be 20 years before I had to worry about dialysis/transplant. Now based on my biopsy he said that there is no disease and my kidneys would probably get better. None of this makes any sense. He basically gave me 3 different conclusions. So what does this all mean. Does anyone with CKD have an inconclusive biopsy and what were your experiences. Did your GFR get worse/better? Did you eventually have to go on dialysis? Did your CKD just disappear and everything went back to normal. I don’t get it. Any help please.
