Hello Bambang Dirgantara,
Renal polycystic disease (kidney) is a disorder characterized by the formation of fluid-filled sacs (cysts) in the kidney which results in an enlarged kidney and loss of function. The more cysts that are formed, the kidney function will get worse. Renal polycystic disease is a disease that is inherited due to genetic mutations, can be autosomal dominant or recessive. One parent with renal polycystic with a normal partner, then each child has a 50% risk of experiencing renal polycystic as well.
Symptoms that can be found in patients with renal polycystic disease are:
High blood pressure Lumps in the stomach Full feeling in the stomach Blood in the urine (urine) Recurrent urinary tract infections Kidney stone formation Renal failure Renal polycystic diagnosis can be found on ultrasound, CT-scan, or MRI. Kidney tissue biopsy taken during surgery can also help show tissue features and abnormalities in the kidney. The features of chronic inflammation on renal biopsy with renal polycystic are common. Biopsy is useful for excluding the possibility of other abnormalities in the kidney such as malignancy (cancer) which will certainly be able to change the therapeutic plan for the patient (additional chemotherapy, radiotherapy, etc.).
Renal polycystic treatment depends on clinical symptoms, kidney condition and remaining kidney function. Antihypertensive medication can help control a patient's blood pressure. If there is an infection, antibiotics can be given. If kidney function is very poor (kidney failure), dialysis or kidney transplantation may be needed.
To get a more complete explanation about your mother's condition, you should ask directly with the doctor who treats your mother. You can also inquire further about additional treatment plans or periodic evaluations that need to be done postoperatively. Thus the explanation from me, hopefully useful.
