I have polycystic kidney disease.
My creatinine level was 3.6 before surgery, then spiked to 4.6 immediately after surgery.
about 3 weeks later it had dropped to 4.1, as I recall, then down to 3.1 about 8 weeks after surgery.....in other words, actually better than pre-surgery.
I suggest you keep in close contact with your nephrologist and monitor your situation.
Best of luck to you.
Nerve-sparing, open prostate surgery November 13, 2007
Gleason score 9, PSA 14
Biopsy result - 9 of 12 sticks showed cancer
Despite high Gleason score, cancer was confined to the prostate
Possible post-surgery radiation therapy...decision likely in late April 2008, depending upon PSA at that time
Unrelated surgery January 2008 delayed incontinence recovery, which is now showing good signs of improvement (fraction of a pad a day as of March 2008)
Began using Viagra 3 times a week December 2007 to stimulate blood flow
Began using Osbon Erec-Aid Esteem manual pump for therapy mid-February 2008
Will probably begin using bimix injections in addition to Viagra and pump in May 2008
