Brought hubby home last night from hospital, a little worse for wear. His diuretics have all but been removed, which is supposed to put less stress on the kidneys, but in turn has left him with swollen feet and legs so walking is impaired. Will be seeing Cardio, Endocrinologist, and selecting Nephrologist in the near future, as well as getting back with MDA.
As for the word of warning, I posted this to my friends on the Colon Board also. As I was filling an antibiotic for him at Walgtreens last nght, I was telling the pharmacist what the contrast dye had done to him. She asked if he is on Metformin. He is not. But I know it is being used for some cancer patients now. Those on Metformin have a greater risk of kidney failure when getting contrast dye. Please check with your doctor on this as I would hate to see any of you go through what my hubby has.
