MRI Test for BIll October 03, 2016

MRI TEST FOR BILL
The MRI test for Bill at Boston Children's Hospital in Waltham on 10/3 has shown that Bill has extensive bilateral renal scars, likely due to reflux nephropathy. These results have alleviated physicians' concerns  about the masses in Bill's kidneys. Meanwhile, Bill now has to go to the Renal Transplant, W.Mass Assoc. clinic to receive Epogen shots in his belly weekly.This hormone triggers bone marrow to produce more blood cells to keep Bill in good health for transplant. Bill is now very busy trying to balance his school work with clinical appointments.
