This is very reassuring that your eGFR is more than 60; It means that the over all kidney function is good, not bad.
But this is important to note that this also does not mean that kidneys are absolutely normal.
You might be having an initial stage of CKD, but not significant enough to suggest a nephrology referral or any indication for dialysis.
Your prognosis/future is fine. You may stay in the same stage for another 5 to 10 years with out further decline in renal function, provided your blood pressure, cholesterol and blood sugars (if you have diabetes) are well controlled.
And if every thing goes fine, I don't think you will need dialysis in near future or next 10-15 years at least.
I don't think this is related to your kidneys.
Check your vitamin D levels, and thyroid levels --- these are the most common causes for tiredness and fatigue.
Good luck and my sincere wishes for your good health.

Its not very uncommon. But ideally this should not happen in expert hands. But a surgeon can better answer this question.
They shouldn't be causing any problem as of now.
But when they become very weak like eGFR less than 15; one can experience many complications like weak bones, high cholesterol.
Yes this can. So try to avoid this as much as you can and use safe pain medications like Tylenol.
In that case few months to few years. No one can exactly predict.
I will certainly not recommend to take this for long. You must find an alternative to protect your kidneys.
