following a CT scan I have learned today (New Year's Eve!) that I have polycystic kidney and liver disease. Bit of a blow as I feel perfectly well and thought the scan was just precautionary! Recent blood tests were done to check for thyroid, cholesterol, diabetes and anaemia and everything was normal. The scan shows a number of calcific densities in the pelvis, a 1cm calculus in the left kidney, which atrophic and compensatory hypertrophy of the right kidney. I want to be positive and realise that if I hadn't had the scan (for bowel problems-there aren't any-) my kidney disease could have continued undetected for years. I'm nearly 60. Does this mean I have kidney failure? I have read through many of the questions and answers on the site and there are clearly a lot of knowledgeable and sensible people here. Any help and advice gratefully received!
