Just wanted to welcome you to HealingWell. So sorry you must be here, but...
Best place for support, hands down.
I don't have a history like yours, though I've had CD complications involving my kidneys before. So I know what THAT is like, no picnic.
I think you may need to get the whole thing(CD) under control, before you really feel better.
Hang in there, it does get better.
