Well, I got my test results back this morning. Unfortunately, the news wasn’t exactly what we were hoping for.
The ultrasound showed multiple cysts of varying sizes on both kidneys – the largest on my right kidney is 4.4 cm (or nearly 2 inches). On the left, the largest is 3.8 cm. As a result, my kidneys are slightly enlarged.
The next step is a CT scan to get a better look and see exactly where we are right now. Then, I’ll begin seeing a nephrologist to monitor my kidney function. That will really be the only change for now – other than keeping a close eye on my blood pressure and staying as healthy as possible.
So – now we know. I have PKD. And life goes on :)
