Continually having cramps
Hello, @thull – thanks for sharing about the connection between the total parenteral nutrition (TPN) and your leg cramps. Did your doctor offer a theory on why these may have been related?

No, but I googled it and saw that it was listed as a possible side effect by some other people. As soon as I was off, the cramps stopped. Also, I had some elevated liver enzyme, AFT I think that went back to normal about 6 to 8 weeks of being off the TPN as well.
