Scarring to transplant

I'm on the train on the way home from clinic.

I saw Dr Raftery today - for the first time in quite a while. My creatinine was 170 last clinic, which is a bit better than it was, but not exactly fantastic.

He told me that my last biopsy had shown a fair amount of scarring on the kidney, which means that he doesn't expect my creatinine to get back to what it had been - 150 and less.

He also said that even looking back, he still wouldn't have biopsied me based on my creatinine levels, which apparently gave no indication that I was having a rejection episode as early as I must have been to cause that amount of damage.
