I know my kidneys are going to fail. I’m supposed to have another decade, but that’s not guaranteed. My creatinine levels were normal, if not impressive for an individual without ADPKD let alone someone that has it. However, the cysts have grown larger.
I’m experiencing some symptoms which line up with renal failure. But, they also line up with half a dozen other illnesses including stress. I lead a pretty stressful life. It doesn’t feel like they’re failing. In fact, I know they’re not. Something tells me I would know.
I’m supposed to have another decade.
What if I don’t?
