Okay... here is another question...
When it comes to labwork, what should I watch for with the creatinine levels. I had blood work done in December and my creatinine level was 1.06. A few days ago I had more labwork done and the creatinine level was 1.11. The labwork inidicated that this was high, but I don't know if its something to be concerned about.
I don't know if it matters... but the egfr levels showed low at 57. From the reading I've been doing, the creatinine levels and the gfr levels are connected.
Details on me: radical nephrectomy in late August. Removed right kidney. Cancer contained in kidney with clear margins. I have been referred to a nephrologist to monitor my kidney function. Return visit to urologist in December indicated that labwork and chest xray were good. Don't have to return to urologist until June. Will return to nephrologist in April. Just wondering if the 1.11 creatinine level indicates anything.
Thank you so much for taking the time to answer my questions.
Have a great day!
