Nephrologist 's  Response
Dear User,

yes, don't worry, it is absolutely normal. You will progressively see a decrease of serum creatinine, but don't expect a complete normalization for the creatinine. The elimination of creatinine from the organism is more or less half than before nephrectomy. Anyway, I suggest to your father to do a complete renal routine and a consult by a good nephrologist every year. Take care.
