One of THOSE......days

The kinda day where people look at you or talk to you and all you want is to be left alone.

I’m trying not to be horrible but my face is giving me away! 😒

I’m having one of those days flat on back in bed. Craving water I can’t have and feeling sick at the thought of the next meal.

Be better tomorrow I hope and hope I’m more sociable 🤢

Yep. Stopped taking spirolactone because of dangerous potassium level so ascites becomes a problem and more drains! So try to stick to 1L per day including protein drinks.

Sorry just moaning!

Hope your all as well as you can be x

My husband's liver doctor took him off spironolactone and put him on amiloride 2 tablets 5mg twice a day, so on that and furosemide - still supposed to check potassium levels every 3 months or so.

Just moaning is understandable.

Best wishes,

Mary

Teary day today. I had a bath earlier thinking it’d make me feel better....I don’t think it did I just think I’ve got sadder or more pissed off as the days gone on. I’m tired.....tired of telling people I’m fine, tired of waiting for the phone to ring, tired of being tired.....I feel like I’m on a carousel and can’t get off! 😐

I hope so Chelle. Are you going to Kings? Is there a time period when work up was done and eventually get the call or is there a yearly review of all tests again?

Every day I need a break from myself I mean it

same here, Sometimes I think I got that “dang it can’t do that” syndrome, hell I can’t sleep, can’t lie still , can’t eat or drink that, can’t take that medication, can’t breathe, don’t want to hear how are you today 💩 ? etc .... Then someone shows up with a bright idea hell I can’t do that either. So I sit back and smile and bite my tongue best I can 😇

Hi all

It is so hard when people ask how you are feeling and most people are only saying it to be polite.

Could always ask them do you really want to know? I do that occasionally. Being mean but the look on their faces is priceless. I get a bit of sympathy and then not asked for a few days.

I've started to go by the attitude, if you don't want to know don't ask. It is surprising how the greeting can change to just morning, do you want a drink of tea?

Hope that turned out good for you. By the earlobe did not know that , I also do those test every 6 months the lung function test (spirometry and lung volume tests) left lower side collapsed and it just all a mess with masses, looks like my pancreas is about finished working, as for the right side my liver is swollen pushing up the diaphragm into the lung all together learned I can’t exhale. And as for blood gases that was a arterial draw. Sounds like our 6 month test schedule is about the same my yearl test are in August.

All those who are having a rough time of it I hope you feel better soon. For those who are having their average (but not brilliant) time I hope things at least stay the same, but preferably improve. For those having an up moment keep quiet and don't let the gremlins find out. Long may the improvement last.

I'm starting to feel a bit better from the bug, mainly just tired and not so extreme with the temperature.

The bug making me hungry has caused me to put on a couple of pounds, but hopefully I will soon feel up to being good again.

Hi Chelle I’ve been ‘off the air ‘for a while - but my grandson has sorted for me how are you any updates or calls yet? When one passes onto transplant assessment at a given hospital what is the process when they call you for pre-assessment? What test are involved? How your well xxx
