Another “important” aspect of hitting the 100 day milestone is that it could mean that I will be allowed to venture out, see people, go to church, and possibly even get to eat at restaurants.
But, I guess I shouldn’t get too far ahead of myself. So, you may be wondering how I am doing now? My last two appointments showed that my counts are still on track and even have climbed into normal ranges. The one area that was not so great was my Creatinine level which is running high. This typically means that I am not getting enough fluids which can have an adverse effect on my kidneys. I had to receive fluids by IV at my last appointment. My take away from this is that I need to drink more liquids. I was told to try and drink 3 liters of water per day. I think I have been doing this and I am looking forward to see my results at my next appointment.
With just typical things, my energy seems a little lower than usual and I am still struggling with my appetite and a slight case of nausea. I definitely eat for fuel versus enjoyment. Since the transplant I have lost about 25 pounds. The good news is this seems to be stabilizing and I have been at the same weight for the last few days. I am sure I’ll get passed this soon. After all, food is way too good to miss out on for too long.
Overall, I feel great and I am excited about my awesome progress.
My next appointment at the Cancer Center is Tuesday, December 31th.
