TY for this 2nd transplant lasting almost 5 years. May it continue to work for the rest of my life, + work well. I pray for the next set of labs to be good-they will be done in Aug.
There's always another health problem popping up. Now I have to have cataract surgery (already!); the transplant meds accelerate cataract formation. I'm seeing an eye surgeon in a couple of weeks, but am concerned bc one of my BP meds can cause the iris to prolapse during surgery. Stopping the med doesn't work, bc I've been on it for years + it changes the structure of the iris. I pray for an excellent eye surgeon who has experience dealing with potential problems related to this drug. I also pray for a great outcome when the surgery is done.
Then, of course, there are the non-healing esophageal ulcers that I've had for years, + the hiatal hernia-even though it was repaired, the repair failed in a short time. I'll have to have that revised, too.
One doc is pressuring me to take a bone density drug, but I refuse bc it can cause fractures. Stupid, huh. Why take a drug to prevent fractures if it can cause fractures?
At some point the other hip will have to be replaced. TY that the first hip replacement went pretty well, + that leg is almost as strong as it was before it became a problem. I pray I have at least 2 years before that has to be done.
Please cont. to protect me from rejecting the kidney transplant, + from cancer. May I remain independent + mobile for the rest of my life. Protect me + B from dementia.
In Your precious name, amen.
