Received a call from my Family Doctor that my kidney function numbers have been going bad the last two tests so he wants me to see a nephrologist (sp). (Why aren't words like that in the spell checker?) I said a "What?'. Then he explained. I guess it is to be expected when you loose one kidney the other one has to work harder and that could make things go bad. Infact, I had been wondering about that idea for a while and now the question has been answered. My numbers are boarder line right now 2.08 where last spring it had been 1.38.
I have no idea what to expect. I am bringing with me the last blood tests that were run and the one from last spring so he can see the trend. Should I get a copy of the pathology report for him also? I want it for my records any how. Is there anything else he may need or want that I can gather in advance? Is there anything I should be sure to ask?
Thanks for your thoughts,
