My oncologist called today to tell me my bc came back with a high potassium level. I looked it up on the computer and that seems pretty serious. I finished chemo 9 months ago and right now I am into reconstruction with expanders for another month or two before final inplant.

I'm wondering if any of you have experienced high potassium and what you did or what your doctor did for this problem.

I love this site and look at it every day.

    Mine used to bottom out. I think this falls into the category of "If it is not one thing, it's another."

    What does that mean?

    What was the actual value of the potassium. Don't have to answer if don't want to, none of my business actually, but it does make a difference in the interpretation of result. hummb
