So the ultrasound showed pretty much what the CT did last week — but did eliminate the primary concern related to the vein. I still have some questions, and am hoping they’ll be addressed Thursday at his clinic visit.
But the focus now is that the kidney seems to be laying on top of the major veins underneath it — and this could be causing the edema. This was noticed on multiple tests and the nephrologists have passed it onto the surgical team to see if they have any ideas.
No idea how long that’ll take. But after the last time, I’m not feeling incredibly optimistic.
