Going to see my new nephrologist tomorrow. First time in 5 years prayers needed. I just know the first thing he will ask for is a 24 hour urine sample. I hate those!

Good Luck teacher! Glad you are finally going :)! 24 hours arent so bad, I have to do one every 3 months. I have learned to keep a cooler in the tub full of ice and just keep the jug in there. Saves fridge space!!

Thanks Amy. It went better than expected, but I do have to do the 24 hour urine! Lol. They did an ultrasound and did not see any artery stinosis which is what caused me to lose one of my kidneys in the first place. So hopefully with a good diet I will be able to maintain the function of my left kidney.
