    Default Still in the hospital

    I am still in the hospital here in Ann Arbor MI......at the U OF M Hospital. I am in room 6127 bed 2.
    I have been in the hospital since Dec 5th ( I was in the hometown hospital from 12/05 to 12/18 and then transferred to the U OF M. I was then admitted to the hospital 12/18 until the 4th of January when I was re-admitted.
    I was told that my kidneys were not working ( my left kidney is very small and not working at all. The right kidney is larger, to compensate for the small left kidney )


    I was told that my kidneys are "asleep", and the Drs feel that my kidneys will wake up. I am doing dialysis here in the hospital's dialysis unit for 30 days and hopefully the kidneys will wake up ! Once I am discharged I will have to return to the hospital dialysis unit for 30 days. Then if the kidneys have not "woke up" by that time, then I will go to a dialysis center close to home ( we live 46 miles from the hospital )
    What I want to know is if any of you have experienced this.....or if you know someone that has had their kidneys "go to sleep" and then wake up later(?)

    I am experiencing severe nausea when the dialysis first begins. The nausea lasts through out the entire dialysis treatment. I have tried not eating prior to the treatment,yet this doesn't help.

    in closing, due to my other illnesses, having to be told that my kidneys aren't working ( and no, the Dr has no reason WHY this happened to me.....it just did.
    I am on a low sodium Renal diet. While I don't mind the diet the fact that I have had to use the diet makes me feel really down at times.

    If anyone has any advice for me, please let me know.

    Smiles!

    oh Sugar, I wish I had some advice. All I can do is pray for you and send {{{BIG HUGS}}}} your way. Surely there must be some way to wake those lazy kidneys and get them working again. Hang in there girlfriend......

    Oh, I've never heard of this. I'm praying for a speedy and full recovery. When my mom was ill our family went on a reduced sodium diet with her. Now I can taste salt very easily so don't need as much. Often foods are too salty to me now that where fine before.

    I'm so sorry to hear all you've been through. You will be in my thoughts and prayers for a recovery for your kidneys and the strength and positive outlook to get you through this. Wish I could make the time fly for you so you could get home.
    Nobody is going to stand up at your funeral and say she had a really expensive sofa and great shoes Life is not about stuff.
