Dec 28, 2018 · Recovering after a left nephrectomy....Whats it like? in Kidney & Bladder

@nnimblett Hope your surgery goes well. As Colleen Young said, though, everyone is different and recovery is based on a variety of items. My one suggestion: I was "ignored" by hospital staff insofar as walking following surgery is concerned. Luckily for me, a Night Supervisor realized what was happening and I found myself being walked at 3 a.m.! Walk! Demand to be walked! Walk even when it's the last thing in the world you want to do. Walk when you get home. If it's too cold, whatever, walk back and forth in your residence. Drove home (3 hours) two days after surgery – not bad at 78, I think.

To all with kidney problems who are on Lisinopril, I hope something can be worked out for you. I like @kamama94 diet suggestions, but there are no easy answers. My diet is already limited due to the IBS, so who knows if that's accidentally been a help. I'm so reluctant now to take any meds!!!!

@marvenjsturing. Realized my nephrologist reduced my Lisinopril from 10 mg to 5 mg. Told me it was because of a change in my blood pressure – now, I'm not so sure. Anyhow, after almost a year, bp is 140/68. Cr is 1.0+/-. Think you might want to question your doctor. Hope this helps.

Things to be concerned about keep popping up, don't they. I, too, take Lisinopril. Shall check this out, too.

Dec 10, 2018 · Confused About Diet for Stage 3 or 4 Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD) in Kidney & Bladder

@cehunt57. You mentioned no side effects for the six Years you've been on Prolia. I shall take that as good news. The insurance bit is really beyond my understanding – it makes no sense. Hope there's a solution for you. @sissieann. I feel exactly the same as you do – I'll take a chance on breaking a bone, but am not prepared to risk my kidney!!!

Dec 9, 2018 · Confused About Diet for Stage 3 or 4 Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD) in Kidney & Bladder

A new problem has arisen. While I know that my osteoporosis is a serious problem, I also have to balance whatever I do with the health of my remaining kidney. My rheumatologist wishes to start me on Prolia (denosumab). I'm delighted that Blythe Danner is happy with the product, but is it right for my kidney. I've read some negative comments about Prolia under the discussion on osteoporosis, but right now, it's my kidney that I'm concerned about. So, if anyone has any comments, I'd be most interested.

Dec 9, 2018 · Meniere's Disease in Ear, Nose & Throat (ENT)

@lioness. Dizziness upon arising may not be Meniere's, but rather a blood pressure problem. Do check with doctor. Otherwise, I have the same symptoms and to the best of my knowledge, there is still no cure.
