Have you found out what an enlarged kidney means? My son has an enlarged kidney too, and is having urinary problems, and the doctors don't know whats wrong with him, since all tests are coming back normal! Please let me know what you found out. Thanks

I recently moved and then had a very hard time logging in so I had to re-register
No.......I am just getting settled and will have to go to the local walk-in-clinic as you can't find a family Dr. here in Ontario.................very hard......
But I do have the pathology reports and will present them so that they can refer me to a specialist..........
I did read somewhere that some middle aged people like myself may have to have dialysis....

My last room-mate was having home dialysis 3x a at least I am familiar with it......
So I guess we will just keep reading and searching........I will be following this forum...
Thanks for popping in
