So next steps on the kidney issue. I’ll try and give a summary. Saw my favourite urologist today which was great. There were a number of possibilities, some worse than others which he investigated via a flexible cystoscopy. Not easy but got through it. There is good news. Lots of debris in bladder (old books, articles, clothes etc etc) but it indicates that the kidney blockages are being caused through taking up this debris. So no stoma bags for now, no turp to clear out urethra, but most likely is a permanent catheter. You can imagine I greeted this with a whoop. If this works, dry nights, no getting caught short, bladder clears kidney tubes and therefore kidney function improves and I feel better. So they have given me the weekend to think it through and it will be fitted Monday. The doc plus The nurse practitioner were brilliant, I got a bit upset. It’s been difficult coping with all the side effects from this so if this works my quality of life should improve. This solution is the least invasive so there is good news in there somewhere as bladder otherwise was ok. So another circle disappears and life continues. Just hope it gives me better sleep and maybe I can get used to it.
