Well. I'm not in the hospital because I BEGGED them to let me go home. My husband and I promised to come in and take care of whatever tests I needed to have. My leg is much better but I've been taking Lasix and have had it elevated above my heart for almost a week now. So, it's starting to look back to normal. And my rheumy has been calling daily. She's been worried, too. All my tests should be at her office by Monday so I'll see her on Monday and maybe we can develope some kind of plan to address all of this. My blood pressure was high and it is back to normal now. I did have an attack of angina so I do have nitroglycerin now to help with that but that's about the extent of my answers.
The strange thing is they didn't tell me everything that showed up on the CT scan. I went to the hospital to get a copy of the films and report to take with me to the GI doc and my rheumy and THAT'S when I read all the different things that showed up. Unbelieveable, huh?!?!? But, I am being extremely careful, staying out of the heat, and just trying to rest when I'm not going to doctor's appointments. I'll keep you posted. Thanks for the response!
