Kidney Update

During the most recent stent changing on Mom's left kidney Dr. Severino (Urologist) noticed an issue with the right kidney as well. It will most likely need to have a stent placed to avoid failure. Mom woke up to this news and was extremely disappointed. One more thing to deal with, but she's taking it one step at a time. If dual kidney failure happens there is always dialysis. Mom needs those kidney's to function and filter her body especially through any additional chemo needed etc. Does anyone know of alternative treatment (in addition to the stent) that can help her kidneys recover or function better? We welcome your experiences, comments and suggestions!
