Good morning everyone. I don't post a lot, but I follow the forum pretty regularly.
I had my first follow-up x-rays and blood tests last week. The results are still dribbling in (pun intended). Blood counts are back to normal. It was my low hemoglobin that stated this whole journey (not being able to donate blood summer of 2011 after donating for 30 years with no problems). There is the expected (but still surprising to see it in writing) reduction in kidney function, creatinine levels up to 1.16 from 0.76 and a reduction in GFR from ~100 to 70.
I'm still waiting for chest x-ray results, but so far things are looking good.
