In brief: 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. If the renal failure is not resolved in 3 weeks, ask the nephrologist involved in the patient's care for a better answer to your question. Good luck.
