March 2, 2004 DAY #126


This last week has been a hard week. Right after I signed my last update, I got violently ill, probably from what I ate that day. The rest of the week I was recovering from that. On Sunday, I have a scratchy throat. Today, it has turned into cough and a fever. Just to make matter more miserable, something I ate today, disagreed with me again. My office visit didn't turned out so well either. My bloodwork was okey, but it appears that my liver is experiencing difficulties. After seeing the doctor, I had more bloodwork done to test for a viral induced hepatitis. The alternative would be GVH in my liver. I also had chest x-ray to assure I just have a routine colds. No results yet on those tests. My Cyclosporine level was low, which could explain liver GVH. My creatinine was back up to 1.3 despite of my best efforts to drown myself daily.

On the medical front, Cyclosporine was increased to 75mg twice a day. That' an increase of 25mg a day. My next appointment is next Tuesday.
