Pyeloplasty Fail

Monday, April 18, 2011

Remember the stone issues of last year? The numerous procedures? Surgeries? Transfusions? Pulmonary Embolism?

The Pyelopasty was supposed to fix that. Apparently, it really didn't.

My post-op MAG-3 renal scan shows a "worsening UPJ obstruction" but my kidney drains well with Lasix. Even the doctor was kind of baffled by that.

What does it mean? At some point I'll need to have further surgery to work on it. But, that is not now. Currently, I am having only minor discomfort, and I have no new stones. Until, I start to have more stones we'll wait and watch with renal scans every 6 months.

I can live with that. There really isn't a choice is there?
