Well, A few of you have been bugging me for an updated blog....
I am hitting the pool 5 days a week this week. I have been doing at least 50 min of water aerobics or walking, and moving and doing the PT routine to build core, and strengthen the muscles in the legs/hips etc --while also moving arms in strokes, and resistance. I actually did the *advanced* work out once last weekend, and once so far today... one more time later this week.
I stepped on the Dr Scales yesterday and it read 288.2. The Dr started me on Lyrica. I am on the lowest dose - 25mg. I am very concerned about taking this as it can irritate my already fragile kidney... and the Dr flat out said, if I gain 2 lbs while being on it, I am to wean off of it. Let alone other side effects (and the list is long). I stepped on the scales today, and today I was at 286.2. (So I lost 2 lbs not gained it...and it's been in the range I am fluctuating in.
I am also currently feeling "Over Stimulated" just by doing my normal activities... let alone when I drive -- with the signs passing by. The Pharmacist said, Take again tomorrow.... and if I am still having side effects call my Doctor. I plan on calling her both ways. Also having issues with ears popping and a bit of a scratchy throat (all Possible side effects)
I received a call from the Radiologist today, to come back into the clinic to have more x-rays done. They said they will tell me the results right then, and what my next step should be from there. So I am just biding time, until I know more tomorrow.
I take more blood work and Urine tests in less than a month, and if there is kidney issues, or other issues, it should show there too.
I am excited about this weekend. Dan and I are going away without the kids. I am hoping He sales lots of items, and be able to build his business. I will not be here this weekend :) Hope you all have a great spark weekend without me!!
