I have been given the shock of my life the other day by my nephrologist - that my kidney is only 33% functional:(. I am 33, male, from India living in Sweden.
I am still struggling to come in terms with it. I was rather unfazed when the doctor broke the news to me, but that was more because I wasn't very much aware of the criticality of it. Now that I read about it more on the Internet, I feel a ton more worried, and feel like i should have asked a lot more questions to my doctor and I should have been told a lot more things by him.
How bad is really a 33gfr for a 33 year old?
