Underwent CABG. Why did creatine level shoot up? Underwent dialysis. Recovery chances?

Dear Doctor, Good evening. My father recently underwent CABG on 18.04.2012. During that time serum creatine level was only 1.3. Gradually we saw that creatine levels shot upto 7.6 by July last week. Following are some of the readings of his creatinine levels. April 17th - 1.3 April 20th - 2.39, June 6th - 2.19, July 7th - 4.13, July 30th 7.6. We are woriied when it came to 7.6 and we approached nephrologist . he immediately suggested to underwent DIALYSIS. For this, he was in hospital from 3rd Aug till 13th Aug. once in every 2 days now he is going for dialysis. Doctor has done BIOPSY on 11th Aug and we are waiting for the result. In this situation, what are the possibilities of recovery and what are the medications available? I am willing to bring him to Bangalore if required. Please suggest. Thanks & Regards, Surya.

hi surya
thank you for the query
I have gone through your query..
why serum creatinine elevated after CABG in your father case is it could be either due to the contrast dye used for angio graphy pre operatively or intra operatively because of hemodynamics which is relatively common in what is of real concern is your father under going regular dialysis
possibilities here of recovery are pretty much good surya ..medications you can use as prescribed by your nephrologist diuretics reno protective anti hypertensive drugs if your father has got hyper tension too to prevent the progression of the disease phosphate binders and calcium supplements as prescribed by nephrologist I can suggest dietary plan like salt restriction,not taking fruit juices and coconut water which has got the high potassium..and regular follow up with serum creatinine
hope I have answered your query to your satisfactory level
would welcome the follow up queries
thank you
