I had a prostatecomy five weeks ago. Due to a drop in my blood pressure during the surgery, my kidneys were stunned and since the procedure I've been having problems with possible renal insufficency as indicated by higher than normal creatine levels in my blood (1.7 was last one).
I've started to take some natural antioxidants (selenium, lycopene, fish oil, vitamins E & D) to fight recurrence of prostate cancer later on. One supplement called L-Methionine I also use helps to detoxify the body. However, I do not know if it will increase creatine level or help to decrease it--do any of you know? I know this is a rather technical question and I'll ask my nephrologist; however, would also appreciate your knowledge.
Also, if anyone has had a similar experience of kidney problems related to a RC, I'd like to know if it was a passing problem or now a chronic one. Thank you.
