My boy friend is suffering from chronic kidney disease since 2010. In 2011 - January he was badly suffered due to CKD and doctors recommended him to do a transplantation. And until May - 2011 he took 1 dialysis treatment for a week. After may doctors decided not to do a transplantation and they stopped his dialysis treatments. According to his medical reports doctors said that the necessity of transplantation will be occurred after two years or more. Now it is 2012 and he still do not take dialysis treatments. Until January 2012 he checked his blood for medical treatments and now doctors recommended not to have a blood check up every month. They prescribe medicine without seeing the blood report. According to this can we say he is avoiding from the risk of transplantation. will it be able to control his CKD without doing transplantation? if one possible please answer me. Thank you very much
Your history indicates that your boyfriend suffered a form of acute kidney injury, and during that period, the need for dialysis and transplantation was made. But with time as the kidney recovered its function with ongoing treatment, reassessment led your doctors that there was no need for renal replacement therapies (like dialysis & transplantation) at this point of time.
But it would be necessary to keep monitoring his renal functions , especially if he is still symptomatic, and continue any treatment as needed to prevent recurrence of such acute renal failure episodes.
Since the history does not provide any information to make a pertinent medical diagnosis of the cause of his renal disease, it would not be possible to indicate if he may or may need renal replacement therapy in future.
Your treating doctors would be the best to quide you in this matter.
