Hello I am writing as I am very concerned about my fathers health, with in the last year he has undergone bladder cancer removal had a stoma fitted as part of the operation, he has been in and out of hospital for several blood transfusions, he has recently lost a lot of wait, had a loopagram which we have recently found out did not perform fuuly as it did not complete the loop, he is now after calling the GP out again in hospital, he went in witha kidney function of 12 and within 2 days this is already down to 10, he has had a brain scan and at last an MRI on his kidneys, there seems to be blockages to both kidneys, his creatinine level is 400, aparaently his left kidney has been blocked for some time alas we have not been told. They are intending to operate shortly on the right kidney which is also enlarged to try and remove the blockage. We are not being told what the blockage could be due to, we dont know why they seem reluctant to talk or operate on the left kidney, we are very concerned that this could be secondary cancer and he is not being told. He just seems to be in an out of hospital getting the immediate problem fixed then going back in again the next week which he is finding very distressing. Is there anything we can do to prevent the toing and froing in an out of hospital, if it is terminal are the doctors obliged to tell us, will the doctors know what caused the blockage when they operate, will that make any difference, will he need to have dialysis as his functionality is to low, what is his possible outcome so both he and us can deal with it, we really feel like we need the facts instead its another day we will see what that brings it has been going on to long, please can you help

Hello, I m a sixty one year old woman. I have had kidney stones for last thirty years. Butlastfour years I have been diagnosed with four large stones but due to fact I have Medicare they said they won t remove them, so two years ago I went in hospital for second time, stone pain and Medicare was once again going to send me home. In thirty years I have not one time been able to loose stones at home they are always multiples and to large I m told, and last hospitalization they found mass in my left lung and said that took priority over stones but they sent me home not taking care of either problem again saying it was insurance problem. I have no family, am legally blind , my question is, if I repeatedly have stones shifting and pushing and then shifting and then moving over and over will this eventually cause damage to my kidneys as I have been sick for a week, something different, painful, not. Stones but I hurt and I want to lay downfall day, and as I am hyper and don t believe in laying around no matter how sick I am this thing that started a week ago is scaring me. Thank you for any information you can pass on. Judy kreger
