I called the Dr., spoke with the nurse. They didn't seem alarmed in the least. I had the fistula done in my wrist on Friday the 29th. Then my doctor calls today to let me know that my creatinine has made another drastic jump. So now I have to go to Intervention radiology (?) for a chest cath so that they can start my dialysis immediately. She does not want to wait for the fistula to mature. This has not been a very good week.
