i haven't been online for awhile since we moved to GA i have had doc appointment up the waazoo, but i finally had the second kidney biopsy since april and now with the meds that they had put me on in april it seems to have worked becuase the docs say the prelim reports say there is no sign of lupus or rejection in my new kidney, and i know that i should be happy but right now i have mixed feelings cuz my creatinine is still up, the docs are not that concerned because they dont have the final report yet. i just want everything to be normal again. i also have a new pcp and he is wonderful. he put me on an anti-depressant and i am seeing a therapist, she is surprised that with my disease and all that i have talked about so far (i have only seen her 3 times, but she has me coming to see her every other week) that i hadnt been seeing one before. i probably should have been i wasnt. i think that is helping some and of course i have a wonderful husband who does more than his fair share around the house without too much complaining. so hopefully we can get on and in about six months start trying to have a baby.
a question i wanted to ask was, does anyone take diamox? i have been on it and i am thinking that maybe it is the reason that my creatinine is going up because it acts as a diuretic and some diuretics can make your creatinine increase, at least that what docs have to me?
so that's my update for now, i will let you all know what happens when i get the finally report from the docs.
