Thanks for the post, Bill. I don't have any edema or swelling, though - I've actually lost weight. My UA was normal 3 wks ago - as was the potassium - which went from 4.8 (then) to 5.4 one week ago. I Imagine we'll repeat both of those on Monday. Till then I'm just trying to steer clear of potassium rich foods and staying well hydrated.
Bill - Thanks for clarifying. I will definitely be seeing the doc and following up. I appreciate your help!
Judy - Thanks so much for your post. There is nothing like the voice of experience! You and Bill have both been extremely helpful. It is so reassuring just to have people understand what you're talking about and where you're coming from. I am going to make sure this gets checked and double checked! So far my BP is okay and no swelling - and there has only been a small amount of "foam" - so maybe we can nip this in the bud. I can certainly see how one could miss the signs for awhile. If my potassium hadn't come back high, I probably wouldn't have paid too much attention to the other.
Blessings to you!
