hi everyone. i have been reading through and thought i would ask outright. can anyone share a story of how they began to notice a kidney dysfunction. besides urinary changes. does anyone here have pkd? can you describe how you began getting sick?
Hi, I have just found out that I have a kidney problem due to a routine ultrasound which showed I have a shrunken left kidney with simple cysts, but I need investigating more and am waiting to see the doctors. I didnt have any symptoms.
My husband has a chronic kidney disease and the first thing that made him aware was swelling in his feet, and terrible leg cramps.
At this stage regarding myself I dont know if it is pkd.
