Hello Everyone....Just wanted to thank you all so much for the info. Shelly I have printed all of the info and do have a file started. Sometimes I have to read alot of the information over and over to retain it. Its like my brain just gets too full at times. We had another good day today. Jerry has been eating non stop. I'm one of those that has to know WHY this is happening. The only thing different the last few days is he's on an antibotic for a sinus infestion.
Pink Grandma I know I owe you a call and hopefully soon when I'm not so tired. If Jerry keeps up this energy increase he can help himself more.
Butterflythree I'm calling first thing Monday to get those lap results.
Hopefull2 As far as muscle cramps Jerry had them so bad at time he would scream in pain. I would be up all night pounding on his legs and arm and entire body at time. You could actually see the cramps moving through his entire body. When it happend in the hospital the nurses couldn't believe it because at that time his potassium was NOT low or high. The only think I could figure out was that it was from the diaretics taking all the fluid out of his muscles. Like when a football player gets them when they play in the hat. The only problem with my husband they couldn't give him fluid because of his acites. It was crazy. Finally a kidney Dr. came up with a drug they use for restless legg syndrome. Its called klonopin. When the cramps were real bad he had to take it three times a day . It did give him some relief. He doesn't take it now because as his live transplant Dr. will say he is comander and chief and he only takes what he prescribes!!!
Hep93 Jerry has never been offered potassium pills and I'm not sure why. I do know early on I gave him potassim pills over the counter when he would scream in the middle of the night. I thought the GI Dr. was going to bite my head off!!! So I learned my lesson.
Again Thank you all and God Bless
