I'm having my kidney removed due to cancer on the 12th of December. I seen the haemotologist today as requested by the surgeon. My platelets were 1,000,042 and I've been put on hydroxy for two weeks to lower them for obvious reasons before surgery. He also gave me anti sickness pills but said I may well not need them, hopefully I don't !
It will be interesting to see how far they drop. Obviously with only having one remaining kidney I asked about future usage of hydroxy as I have read somewhere that it's not kidney friendly. He said it was safe to use and did not damage kidneys. Anyone know about any issues regarding this ?
