what does this mean

I went to see my Doctor to-day for a general check-up, Pap test etc. I had blood work done one week ago and she is "concerned" about my creatinine levels. I've heard that it is not uncommon to have elevated levels during chemo because the kidneys are working overtime to get rid of the toxins. I'm 10 months out of Folfox. She has scheduled me for further blood work in November to keep an "eye on the situation". It seems to me that whenever I go near her I end up a nervous wreck. I have an appointment with my Oncologist next week, but until I speak to her I know I will not sleep.

Anyone else had "creatinine" elevation that has continued after treatment.

I know I was monitored very carefully during chemo and nothing was mentioned about "kidney problems".
