…that my doctor had to go home to Egypt due to a family emergency, so I would be seeing a colleague of his
…that my liver is still messed up, and that my condition will be evaluated on a regular basis
…my blood pressure is too low (98/50…yeah, that’s kinda low. Should be something like 120/80), so the doctor cut my blood pressure medication from 40mg to 20mg
…that I will need to be on all of my meds for the foreseeable future
…that I’ll need to watch my weight (that’s a given) even though I’ve lost close to 130lbs
…continue to watch my sodium intake, which is greatly reduced from what I was taking in prior to my October hospital stay
…and to come back in August for an ultrasound, blood work, and a check up.
So, all in all, not as bad as I feared. We’re not taking about putting me on the transplant list quite yet. But I’m still not 100% well. I’m still fatigued, which gets in the way of other stuff (like getting a job); and these dizzy spells, which I hope is just the meds and not me.
So we carry on. Don’t have much choice at this point.
I’m Stef and this is where it’s @ !~
