PostSubject: going back into hospital.... and kidney problems   Tue 08 Dec 2009, 10:54 am

Hi all,

I am going back into hospital next week for a renal angiogram as my consultants think they may have identified renal artery stenosis as a possible contributory cause of PE for me - I've had other tests - renal ultrasound and renogram, my right kidney is small & only doing about half the "work" my left is, and my kidney function is only about 60% of normal overall (but I don't have high blood pressure or spill protein, so sadly no-one had really identified this before I got pregnant). There is definitely something wrong with one of my kidneys, so I'm hoping its an artery problem (as that might be treatable), rather than intrinsic kidney disease (probably isn't treatable).

I am wondering if anyone knows anyone who has had a similar condition and PE, or had it treated and ttc again?

Please wish me luck, I've been feeling awfully low after stillbrith and miscarriage within 6 months, so of course I am hoping that maybe this might help improve my kidney function about before I consider TTC again.

Best wishes, I'll let you know how I get on later on next week

Don't know anything about your condition, but hope you get all the answers you are looking for from your consultant. Good luck with everything, you deserve it after everything you have been through!

Hi Jules,

There have been ladies who have posted here that have had renal problems that affected their pregnancies so hopefully they will also reply. I dont know a huge amount about renal disease but do know a bit about stenosis if that helps.

Also, there are some renal specialists around who maybe able to help. Let me know if you would like me to send you the details.

Either way, I hope you get some answers....and ones that will show a clearer way forward for you. Good luck next week, keep us posted.

Warm wishes
Liz
