Back to 'Normal'
Sunday, January 30, 2011
The doctor didn't order ADDITIONAL tests, no... just the ones before the prescription, showed my kidney functions as follows: my GFR is down by 3points but the creatinine hasn't changed in 2 yrs and it's still stable-- he's very conscious of the kidney disease and that's why he immediately took me off the stuff, especially the minute he heard of the blurry vision. That apparently really spooked him! Usually when I call with a question, it can be 48 hours before I get a reply... quicker than a lot of places, but I wasn't expecting a call back in about an hour and a half... he didn't want me to take even one more!... I've been off it now for only a day and I already feel SO much better!...just sleeping a lot. Part of the healing process, is my guess.
I do have to step up the diet program. I kind of had some 'slips' with the nausea etc this last week: you know how it is when you don't feel well, you sort of just eat what you can, even if it isn't the healthiest stuff... plus all those months on the 'hotel regimen'... I KNOW I can do so much better. I HAVE to:
I don't like the changes in the GFR, it WILL affect my other readings eventually and I don't want that at all.
As to fun stuff...
Yesterday I finished ADRs for that movie I was in... it was fun, but that drive was hard. It's only about forty miles one way, but I was falling asleep at the wheel(?!) --so I stopped along the way for a few 10 minute catnaps. It worked, I did fine. Just that it's been a long time since I've had to do that--LOL
