Today, my boyfriend found out that he has kidney failure. He was feeling sick for a few weeks and I had told him to drink lots of fluids and eat vegetables. Apparently that is really bad for kidney patients. I was killing him with water and spinach salads. FML

Raven3434 tells us more.

Just to put it out there, he had complete kidney failure. He is now on dialysis. His kidneys are toast and he needs a transplant. Apparently it was caused by years of high blood pressure. His kidneys were in trouble before we even met. And I had been encouraging him to go to the doctor. He had seen a few doctors, but nobody diagnosed him until his lungs were full of fluid. He can't drink too much fluid because he can't get rid of it without dialysis. He cant eat too many fruits or vegetables because he can't process out the extra phosphate and potassium. He also has to limit his sodium, but that wasn't part of my original post. Just wanted to clarify things. Thanks to all of you out there who offered support. Its been a really hard time.

it's not your fault in the way that you shouldn't feel bad.. just NEVER play for a doctor if you're not one.

It's not really "playing doctor" by suggesting someone drink lots of fluids and eat vegetables, it's just common sense that that's good for you and if you feel sick or even like your about to come down with a cold then you should eat healthier. Not really something you need to be a professional to suggest.

you assface. most illnesses require more fluids so that was a smart thing to say.

Thats what he was saying.

Don't know if 10 is trolling. Or just stupid.

Dick thing to say, how was she supposed to know it was kidney failure and not some average illness that requires more fluids than normal?

how exactly is it her fault? =/

YDI for making him drink water and vegetables

So what, its her fault for caring and not his fault because he evidently did think well enough to go see doctor? Still, dick thing to say, next time articulate.

you really did the right thing. it's HIS fault for not going to the doctors sooner.

You didn't know : ( FYL
