Hi: I got my PCR results, and I am PCRU which makes it 9 years now. I was very glad to hear that. Just concerned now with my other numbers regarding my kidneys. My GFR rate jumps all around from 47 then up to the 50's, and I knew I was dehydrated when I did this last blood test.
I just do not drink water at all. I am always drinking coffee, and that is a automatic dehydration drink. I was hoping if I could get more fluids in, would my numbers come back up. They told me years ago that I had CKD. It seems like no matter what you go through, there is always something else to be concerned about.
I was wondering if anyone else has this problem. My kidney functions have always been crazy even before my diagnosis of CML, and years ago you did not get the GFR, that is new the past 5 or 6 years now. My doctors used to just tell me to drink more water. Sometimes I would drink tons of water before my test, and my numbers were all normal. I think I stay away from the water, due to my Overactive Bladder.
I should just Thank God for today, and what I have accomplished through the years with my CML.
