Crossed wires

I got a letter from my urologist today. Apparently my kidneys are not as good as my consultant thought. My urologist is worried about the poor drainage from my left kidney, and in particular the affect of that on its long term health.

The divergence of the two positions is a bit worrying, but one has to assume the urologist knows best. So, not good.

He’s currently talking about reinstalling a stent immediately, and possibly trying to dilate the ureter in the longer term to try to improve the drainage. Of course, all this is dependant on the state of the disease in my pelvis that my consultant is still trying to resolve.

Frankly, I’m feeling rather depressed; I thought I’d cheated this, and I’ve just realised that I’ve not.
