First scans next week

I have my first Mag3Renal scan next week-3 month.  I had a recent CT due to shortness of breath, rising pulse and BP.  It didn't show anything worrisome.

I have definitely experienced an overall spike in BP and pulse-headaches, dizziness since my partial nephrectomy in late May of this year.

I have been trying to increase water, watch sodium and have lost almost 20 lbs.  My primary MD has me wearing a heart monitor for 30 days due to higher pulse (in the 90s) and some previously mentioned sx.

Not really sure what to expect.  But hope sx do not get worse.

    My BP has gone up since my partial. I was always on the low side but not since the surgery. Ditto for periodic rapid pulse. Wonder if it's common. Wishing you good results on your up coming scans!

    Hi Shelmel

    Same here - I always had exceedingly good and consistent bp until partial and now have to watch it. Smart move on the water, sodium and weight - the weight is the hardest for me so you are encouraging me. Take care -
