Does a drain bag for a CKD patient with Hydronephrosis help improve creatinine and eGFR?

If the drain bag is relieving blockage of the kidney, there should be some return of kidney function, however, I cannot make a specific diagnosis based on the information that you present.  I suggest that you discuss this with the urologist or physician who placed the drain bag in the first place.
