Sue, the difference between chronic and acute renal failure is the time it takes to develop. At the end the result is the same, but obviously chronic failure takes longer to reach the end. I have no information on what the longest time is, but it’s probably more than a decade. The best would be to contact his nefrologist and ask him. Good luck.
