I am a male born in August 1936. Diagnosed with terminal bladder cancer in Oct. 2007, I responded well to chemo. However, there has been three recurrences since remission, tho of far less severity. I was put on tamsulosin from Nov. 2007. Tho' my creatinine was a bit high during the early stages of chemo (93 ummol/L, varying from 82 - 105), my eGFR was about 60 or greater until May 2013 - not giving me too much alarm. However, CT/MRI scans did indicate my right kidney was atrophing. I was assured this was due to the ureter being blocked due to the scarring in removing the bladder tumour. And that the other kidney was fine and able to cope on its own. It was noticed about March 2014 that the remaining kidney was failing - creatinine rsing to above 220, eGFR falling to 28. The nephrologist could offer no explanation as to why this may have happened - despite having full access to all my notes; words to the effect that these things just happen. Similarly my urologist never suggested that there may be a problem due to taking tamsulosin. So I continued taking tamsulsin on and off, virtually stopping in Aug. 2014 when I had a prostatectomy to bore out my prostate. Having recurrent bladder cancer that was my main concern, tho' a failing kidney was becoming equally important in terms of survival. As a daily self-tracker of lifestyle for 40+ years in increasing detail, I have good records covering my whole time on tamsulosin as well as many clinical markers. So when my getting up at night increased in frequency and I went back on tamsusolin, I noticed that my %risk of loosing my kidney in 5 years shot up - and I suspected this was due to tamsulosin - which I stopped fairly quickly (I'd taken it for 20 days). I will do creatinine and albumin tests in a few days to see if my risk has reduced again - it had been improving prior to re-starting tamsulosin (it had risen from 3.4% to 9.2%; but has been as high as 40+%. My data has shown that animal protein (and and fish to a less extent) correlated with increased kidney marker distress. Vegetable protein correlated highly with reducing stress. I have become vegan since uncovering these correlations.
