I guess it has been a while...

I found out that my potassium/sodium levels are fine on the Lasix, but that I have high cholesterol. I am not sure of the exact number though. I am allergic to statin drugs though, so I can't take the usual stuff. I was put on Gemfibrozil and was taking these monster pills twice a day, but I was feeling really, really bad and I called my PCP and was told to stop taking it and we will just revisit the options at my next appointment which is not yet booked.
I also have not heard from the retina doc's office yet about making that July appointment so I am a bit concerned about that too.
I will be giving them a call tomorrow to see what is going on.
I am still swollen, but I am down to about 243 from 260 a month ago, so that is good. I had plateaued for a bit and my PCP doubled my Lasix, so now I am on 80mg every morning.
I think everything else is the same, medicinewise.
