Well I didn't quite get the Good News I was hoping for. Blood Results are in: Some Good , Others Very Bad!
Cholesterol is Down YAY! Total 198 LDL 105. So the Lipitor has worked but I am off it now. Liver function is overall fine. I am happy about this.
However for my Kidney: my Creatine is up to 3.77 (not a good sign) and my GFR (overall kidney function) is at an all time low of 12. 15 and below is Complete Kidney Failure So this is definitely not want I wanted to hear but it is what it is. To top things off I am now anemic, caused by the kidney issue as well. No wonder I am tired all the time!
Now I would say that the next step for me is to get a portal in place for Dialysis but I won't know anything definite until Monday of next week when I see the specialist. I don't feel sick at the moment, aside from the tiredness, so perhaps that will play in my favor. Still hoping I guess...
WOW, this has been such a sad year!
I think I will go take a nap so I can forget what I just heard for awhile.
