When I saw my internist earlier this week, we were discussing the frequency and types of CT and/or Ultrasounds& Xray. Yes, I have pre and post hydration-very necessary to flush the contrast dye thru the remaining kidney. He then asked about mucomist and I said that has been prescribed for the day before and the morning of the test. His verdict is STOP!
Needless to say, I had been given a script at the time my next CT was scheduled, and I won't be filling it. Not that I'll miss the awful taste of rotten sulfer added to cranberry/raspberry juice to be able to get it down.
So if your oncologist is still having you take it, ask questions. He may not have heard that some Dr's are recommending against it. My doc has a number of kidney cancer survivors, and others who have different degrees of kidney failure.
