Just back from a "today" appt at GP.
I take 14 different meds for PMR, high BP, hypothyroidism, osteoarthritis. I had a AF episode 2 weeks ago and had to go to A&E. There was slight UTI too. This has not cleared with self medication on Mannose and caused 2 changes of clothes yesterday as crutches slow my walking( waiting for 2nd hip replacement in 6 months due next month). I also have alternate constipation and diahorrea since Naproxen was added to my med list. So GP very understanding, sending urine sample for testing but have antibiototic to take. Stop Naproxen, increase co- codamol. Add an antidepressant to lift mood. And vastly increase the Lactulose for aiding constipation. So minus 1 plus 3 meds!
I hope ....hope some of this will be resolved when hip op takes place.
I told my long suffering Hubbie that the antidepressant leaflet says give to a partner or friend to read.......he continues to stick with his computer screen.
Lunch with friends for her birthday today. And weekend away with 12 couples in our sports car plus bike rack carrying my wheelchair......fun??
Thanks for reading. Just needed to share.
