  • Complications after kidney biopsy

    I had a CT guided needle kidney biopsy this past Tuesday. I didn’t show any signs of blood in my urine or even a lot of soreness until 4 days after the procedure. This morning (Saturday) I noticed some blood after urinating (a couple of tiny clot-like drops) and the side containing my biopsied kidney is extremely sore. Has anyone experienced a delay in symptoms/complications after a biopsy? As a side note, I have a blood clotting disorder and haven’t resumed taking my Plavix & aspirin as of yet....

    Do I need dialysis?

    I was suddenly dignosed with CKD since January 2018 - everything was alright in December 2017. From January to August 2018, my creatinine steadily dropped with the help of a controlled diet and was 2.9 when I started accumulating fluid in my chest cavity. I was advised to go for a CABG which I did after which I needed dialysis as my urine output was NIL. After about 12 sessions of dialysis, my output reached a reasonable level and the creatinine started correcting. I was off dialysis for about 2....

    Renal agenesis

    I'm 15 and I was born with 1 kidney. I have an excuse of an immunity. I'm anemic and I don't absorb iron. My lungs suck so bad I feel lightheaded every time I step in the shower just because of the humidity. I can barely eat anything without feeling gross, but then again I have two bites and I'm full. I'm always tired, I can't remember when I last wasn't. My periods are like 3 weeks long and I have constant abdominal pain going on 3 years now. I'm on birth control....

    So I'm a 22 yr old female. I'm scheduled to have an kidney biopsy Wednesday the 13th and they told me I am supposed to watch the bleeding in my urine afterwards and that it should go away within a day but I think my period will come on either Tuesday night or that morning, how do I know if the bleeding is from my kidneys or my period? Can I still have the biopsy done if it comes on beforehand?

    Cause for my illness

    I am a retired firefighter. Shortly after I retired I developed kidney disease. I am on dialysis now. I have not been given a reason for my disease. I was wondering if it could be related to my occupation.
