Question: I have multiple cysts on both kidneys. I would like to have them drained and flushed with alcohol. What are the risks involved and repercussions involved with this? My father died from kidney failure last year so I would like to remove them so I can love my life without fear as my specialist has given me the same fate and I don’t want to believe it.

Polycystic Kidney Disease: What Are the Risks Involved with SurgeryAnswer: Polycystic Kidney Disease (PKD) is a genetic kidney disorder, which can pass down from one generation to another. You said you want to have the multiple cysts drained and flushed with alcohol. This is a commonly used surgery for PKD patients, which is also known as sclerotherapy. It can shrink big renal cysts and relieve your discomforts, such as back pain and reduce the damage to kidneys, but surgery has some risks.

-This risk of the procedure depends on how deep the cyst is within the kidney, and also how many cysts you have treated. You may get small amounts of bleeding, some pain or a fever during the procedure, but more serious risks are minimal.

-Surgery is only suitable for early stages of PKD. When you are in advanced stage, too many cysts form in the kidneys and your kidneys have been severely damaged, so surgery can do nothing for you.

Moreover, surgery can only remove the big renal cysts, while the small ones are still there. When big renal cysts are eliminated to make room, the small ones will grow up quickly. Therefore, surgery is only a temporary medical relief.

If you would like to choose conservative treatment, you can try Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy.

It can infiltrate the micronized herbs into polycystic kidneys, which can restrain the abnormal activity of renal tubular epithelial cells and lining cells to stop the growth of renal cysts. It can also increase the permeability of cyst wall and pressure difference inside and outside so that fluid can be drawn out. And then renal cysts will become small. After about one week’s treatment, back pain will get relieved. After about half month’s treatment, your high blood pressure will be reduced and be stabilized. After about one month’s treatment, your renal cysts will shrink, and renal condition will get improved.

What are the risks involved with surgery for PKD patients? Now you get the answer. If you would like to know more information on PKD treatment, please leave a message below or contact online doctor.
