I went to the ENT on Tuesday (well, we were there on Monday and Wednesday too, but that was for Ken & K and Ken ;)). I got my hearing results… which basically said that I have a moderate hearing loss. Dr. R. thinks that my problem is from extra fluid, so he was going to put me on a diuretic, until we realized he did not have my current medications and I am already on one… so he decided to double it. Well, the other thing is, I got my lab results yesterday and apparently I am dehydrated… cuz my BUN/Creatine ratio is elevated. So, my question is, if I am dehydrated, do they really want me increasing my diuretic and is the hearing issues really from extra fluid in the ears???
My lab tests also showed that I am NOT allergic to Latex. I am not sure I believe that. I will put on the gloves at work again and see what happens. I wonder if I have any around here that I can put on over the weekend? I see the allergist on Monday. I also have a REALLY delayed reaction to stuff, which makes me wonder if they tested stuff once or more than once? The last time I wore latex gloves, my hand broke out that afternoon, and I broke out in hives the NEXT day! Other good part is my Cholesterol is better. The only number out of wack now is the Good Cholesterol and it improved by 6… so I am closer than I was before.
Oh, and I also got my culture from Friday. My PCP basically looked at me like I was insane when I told her that I wanted her to run a culture and see if I had MRSA. I was sure that I was the reason Ken had it. She was sure that the antibiotic I had just finished was the one that they use to treat it. Well, let’s just say, not only do I have MRSA, but it is resistant to the ‘big guns’ that I had just finished. Not that I want to be sick, but sometimes it is just knowing I am not crazy. I just wish I would feel better now. She didn’t treat me because I am not symptomatic, but I still don’t feel good and my face still hurts!!!
I did loose weight this week. Down to 219.4…. which is down another decade…. and almost to my PRE-PG weight. Granted the kid is 10 now… but still Only 19 lbs to OnderLand!!!
