he is reducing his dose now on harefields advice, and repeat blood tests on thursday.

local surgery nurse has written him up for every blood test going in preparation for next weeks big one year check.

So it definitely wasn't a heart attack?

Oh good - well not good, but good you have a reason for his blip.

Surely it's not a year, misdee??



LackaDAISYcal Mon 11-Aug-08 17:49:52

phew misdee; at least they can now deal with it.

Can't believe it's a year already...are you celebrating with something nice?

misdee Mon 11-Aug-08 17:51:10

not a heart attack. grin

but it's highly likely its the reason for his strange turn, and the ongoing unwell-ness he is feeling.

am still angry that it took some people from an online community to twig what was wrong with him, and not the medical staff (thank you NH and ILTMIMI), and it still took them half a day to get the right bloods drawn for it.

those levels came back high even with him missing a dose.

MerlinsBeard Mon 11-Aug-08 21:55:04

VeniVidiVickiQV Mon 11-Aug-08 21:58:14

Fucking ace grin

I love MN and I am so glad Peter's un-wellness is not as unwell as it might have seemed, if you see what I mean!

LilRedWG Tue 12-Aug-08 11:01:38

Well done ladies!

I'm so glad it wasn't a heart attack

hippipotami Tue 12-Aug-08 11:05:27

Oh, I am sooo glad it was not a heart attack.
Is there any way you can write to the local hospital or get harefield to do it, and effectively get them to improve their service to transplant patients? After all, they did not appear to have a clue did they?

But happy for you and Peter and the girls that all is well smile

misdee Tue 12-Aug-08 17:31:50

i spy iliketomoveit

ILikeToMoveItMoveIt Tue 12-Aug-08 17:37:32

You did indeed smile

Great (sort of hmm) news, am so glad you've got some answers.

I hope all goes well for the anniversary check, although I guess that may involve a biopsy?

I hope you are also taking time to look after yourself during all of this (stern finger-wagging emoticon)

wannaBe Tue 12-Aug-08 17:40:05

can I ask..

what is the tacrolimus for?

Am so glad it was nothing too serious. but bloody hell has it been a year already?

misdee Tue 12-Aug-08 17:56:01

tacrolimus, along with MMF is an immunosuppressant.

he is due at harefield later this month, overnight stay, having biopsy and angiogram.

Slouchy Tue 12-Aug-08 18:00:43

PLeased to see the good news misdee.

Happy 1st anniversary to peter's heart!!!

Twiglett Tue 12-Aug-08 19:13:13
