Dialysis: General Discussion / Re: Holiday Gift Exchange! 2019
« Last post by Riki on Today at 08:40:45 PM »
Gift was sent Monday and it is enroute..

Thursday, a large gold box appeared at my house.  Think it may have come from a leprechaun... *G*

Well Begod and Begorra!!!!!...  So that's where the pot of gold got to!!!...

Top of the mornin' to be sure to be sure!!!....

Darth.....

*LMAO*

Totally can't wait to see what's inside.  I always brought my IHD gift to my grandmother's with me when we used to spend Christmas with her.  She was just as excited as Mom and I were to see what surprises they held.  This is the third Christmas without her.  It still feels weird to not be packing up the car Christmas Eve for the 4 hour drive to her house

Dialysis: General Discussion / Re: constipation need help

Personally I tend to ear a lot of fruit, I dislike most vegetables and since the rule is 5 fruit or vegetable a day I will eat seasonal fruits currently pears.
The fruits generally keep everything moving.  Occasionally minor backups but some stool softener and fruit and the trains start running again.

I had a problem with constipation and my kidney doctor gave me a prescription for Lactulose. Worked very well.

I don't trust anything "The Idiot Johnson" says, will not be surprised if we are still discussing Brexit this time next year (and the year after, and the year after that....).

Dialysis: Transplant Discussion / Re: Water pills
« Last post by Aaisha.Dar on Today at 01:48:31 PM »
The solution is to get your water pill Rxs from a transplant nephrologist and no one else.

Lasix(Frusemide) works on the proximal (ascending) side of the Loop of Henle and Clortahalidone works on the distal(descending) side of the loop.

I know from personal experience that a little bit of each can have a profound reducing effect on Cankles, but the medical people call it pedal edema.  If it's pitting (depression remains after pressing and removing a finger into the cankle) it's definitely time for a talk at your next xplant maintenance appointment.

Could you explain that further. Furesomide works where?

Always a good idea to discuss it with your dr. I remember I only needed and was prescribed ‘water pills’ after I started losing my dad’s kidney. They are not very good for kidney’s, those pills. I used Solidago (herbal) when I wasn’t allowed Frusemide(Lasix), which worked for years.

The pills are bad wheh you take them regularly for an extended time. For me although I am swollen everyday there are some days Im worse to the point where I feel pressure in my face and head.
