I think this is update #3 but you know how to follow along. :-)
I go to the Orthodontist on Tuesday to have my braces taken
off...About a 20 minute job. Dr's have told me to take my antibiotics
just to be on the safe side.
My blood pressure is still in its ups and downs but lately its been
running about 120ish / 85ish...not bad since a month ago it was
160/110... The HBP pill they have me on is also a diuretic....Yes I
know that's bad but DR's are keeping a close eye on me in case of any
possible unknown side effects. I have noticed that my clothes fit
alot better...My pant legs are not as snug on me and I've lost about
10 lbs of water...possibly more.
Next week I'm going to go and apply for SSD/SSI and my Lymphedema
Specialist has told me that he will write a glowing report on why I
need the SSD/SSI. He has also said that the as a result of the
Lymphedema it is one of the reasons that I have developed the HBP.
And because of the added pressure from the Lymphedema on to my upper
right extremities that I am a high risk of lung problems because of
the extra pressure.
I'm also going for another set of therapy sessions and am looking
forward to hopefully going on the AquaTred(Sp) again...As a result of
using that for 45 minutes 3 times a week I was able to loose at least
30 lbs before a nasty infection hit me and I had to stop with all therapy.
Have a good night all.
