Thanks for information.

By looking at information it looks that most probable reason for your present problem is your cat bite injury which does taken a longer time with & associated rhabdomyolysis it leads to the renal failure .In the present scenario this renal failure is giving you edema in leg & back pain.
Hopefully you are at present under the treatment from a nephrologist.Your condition does need a therapy from a team of physicians & dietician specially a renal dietician.You should need to given decreased protein diet,phosphate lowering agents,diuretics to lower the intracellular fluids,erythropoietin factors to keep the hemoglobin at normal level.After controlling all this other parameters will come back to normal.

Hope this will be helpful.
