I finally have an appointment with a nephrologist on April 29. It's the same group that my mom went to and I know they are really good so I'm happy about that. I'm nervous about what he/she will tell me is going on with my kidneys though.
Last weekend, Easter weekend, I visited my step-sister for a big family dinner and it was so nice. However, I noticed that my weight was shooting up. By Monday I had gained 20lbs!! Now, I don't eat enough for me to have gained that much in two days. I could see maybe 5lbs if I was pigging out at every turn but I wasn't. So, needless to say I was not feeling so good. I had lasix and potassium that another doc prescribed so I started back on it on Friday. By Saturday evening I was back down to where I started and had lost 20lbs of fluid! I feel much better now and can actually breathe without difficulty. I'm just wondering if that is from the kidney problems or if it could be from the Metoporolol that my doc put me on. It is also causing me sleep problems. I am only able to sleep 4 to 5 hours and then I'm wide awake.
So, that's what's going on with me.
Thanks for listening.
