Brief Answer: Hi and welcome to XXXXXXX Detailed Answer: Thanks for the query. This is nothing to worry about. This is just slightly decreased GFR which is expected after such surgical procedures. If you dont have any symptoms, tt doesnt indicate anything and it is usually seen in healthy people of your age. At this point I dont see a reason for any further diagnostic tests or therapy. Just do basic blood test and see urea and creatinine levels. You should just repeat this test in 6-8 weeks and see is there any progression of EGFR. If there is efgr bellow 50,you need some more specific kidney tests. Wish you good health. Feel free to ask. Regards
