Hello, all!! We went to the hepatologist today and they did do MELD labs, but the labs were not back yet by the time we saw the doc.....hopefully a phone call tomorrow. However, that is all a mute point due to the fact they my husband has a tooth that is bothering him and the doc won't relist him until we get the tooth fixed......grrrrrrrr!!
So, calling the dentist tomorrow and hoping to get that all worked out. The dentist told us last week they would not touch him until clearance from the doc.....so, the doc gave us a "permission slip" today with copy of lab work showing his platelets are okay......this is so frustrating because it's like a carrot dangling in front of us and everry time we make a step toward that, something happens...sorry did not mean to whine. But, with regard to his last labs from 3 months ago....his bilirubin has been elevated, INR at the higher end of "normal" range and creatnine is okay.....his last MELD score was 11 before get got put in inactive status. So, anxiouis to know what it really is. He is on diuretics right now, and so we have not had fluid retention too bad, blood pressure today was really high, so we are also now on bp medication. He is just so tired and weak right now.....so, trying to take advantage of good days when we have them......thanks for all the info
