Hi, sorry to go on, i have had 3/4 of my thyroid out, and breast cancer, and a heart attack, and now I have been told I have CKD3 and I have to have it out, and no one told me about any of my illnesses no one explained anything, now I see all these letters and numbers about CKD and I don't understand any of it,.Now when I was 18 I collapsed and woke up in hospital days later, I was told I had pylitis ? then in my 30s I had a pain in my side went for a scan and was told I had a small cyst on my left kidney, if it bothered me I could have it took off that's it ? years have passed with other illness I have mentioned I am now 67 and have moved to another county ,having some pain in my left kidney I went to the hospital here and they told me about me having CKD3 and said I have had it for years and have to have it out, it is swelled up 3 times bigger than the other one,but I don't know anything about it ? Now why didn't the other hospital keep an eye on me with my kidney ??
