... severe enough that the doctors were considering dialysis. Could you tell me if there is a possibility of the damage being reversed? The doctors will not talk about this and if it is a possibility, I would like to give my mother some hope

My aunt is on dialysis and yes you can reverse damage to the kidneys. You can get a kidney transplant but if your father has diabetes this may be a reason why they don't want to talk about it. If he does have diabetes he has a greater risk for infection and not recovering. Also if there is not a kidney to be had at the time he would have to be put on a waiting list till there is one available. Tell your mom not to give up hope there are alot of people in this world that are on dialysis that live a very long life. Just want to let you know that dialysis as you know is not a fun treatment to go through when he gets out he will feel nausia,dizziness and becomes very weak from it. I will pray for all of you good luck.
