Very Sick - NOT Covid-19
Wednesday, June 03, 2020
I am sick! Doctor and I finally figured out it is side effects from my new cholesterol shot Repatha. I was on Praulent and doing great and the insurance decided it no longer would cover it, so they made me switch to Repatha, been sick since I started it almost 2 months ago. Doctor pretty much read my insurance the riot act and they have backed off and now will cover the Praulent again. Research says it could take MONTHS to get over the side effects and some may never go away! (but some people recover in a few weeks, I hope I am one of them!) So most days I am extremely lethargic and weak most of the day and I sleep most of the time now. I am trying to jump on Spark during the short times I am able to stay awake.
Hope you are all well. My hubby James is working on our Tiny House (we have started calling it a cabin)
I did hear from my surgeon today and although they can not promise at this time, they expect to be able to schedule me for mid July to early August of my Vertical Sleeve Gastrectomy.
