If ongoing dialysis will be needed, consider home dialysis - more flexibility. ...Read more

Acute renal failure: Most patients with acute renal failure (a) start to recover their renal function in less than 3 weeks. Some, and older, patients can take longer to recover their renal function, up to 3-4 months.

The bad news is that it can cause acute kidney failure (akf) and the good news is that akf, if caught early enough, can be reversed and the patient can recover their renal function. Remember, the patients are not holding in their urine, it is just not reaching their bladder. ...Read more
