Medical stuff

June 24th, 2014 at 07:30 am

DH finally found out why he has been so tired and nauseated lately, and why he's been vomiting even more than is normal for him. Apparently one of the drugs he is taking for his kidneys had the dose increased about a month ago, and the drug was causing his body to retain too much calcium and potassium. They caught it just in time. It literally could have completely shut down his kidneys or killed him had he waited any longer to see his doctor.

His levels are now back to normal, and they have his medications figured out again. His kidney doctor has referred him out to some specialists so he can start getting tests done to see if he is able to receive a transplant.

He also found out he will be needing surgery in the next couple of months to remove a cataract. He is happy about that because it means he'll have slightly better vision after the surgery. He is legally blind, so even a slight improvement is nice for him.
