Mr Admin has a Diagnosis

Post by Admin on Mon Mar 23, 2015 4:13 pm

Once again, Mrs Admin has made a correct diagnosis and our GP agrees.

Atypical Pneumonia.

It's not the first time that I have had this, but it was not so obvious this time, as I did not have a high temperature and I did not have a productive cough.
Also, when my GP checked my oxygen saturation last week it was 98%, but I now realise that this was not a valid reading (Oximeters do not like my fingers when they are cold).
However, my temperature was high on Friday eveining and today's Oximeter check was 91%, so GP happy to accept the diagnosis and prescribe suitable AntiBs.

Hopefully, I will be breathing much better in a few days and can switch-off life's pause button.

We now have our own Oximeter.

Thanks for everyone's support.

Hi Edwin,

Very glad you have Nelly on your case. Hope the antibiotics kick in quickly and you're able to get back your energy.

Thinking of you,

Ho hum.

Had a phone call yesterday evening asking me to see my GP today and my Haemoglobin has dropped to 80 What a Face 

Not what I needed.

The saga continues and I am waiting for a phone call with the renal team.

On a different note, our new high-end Oximeter is giving low readings and is being returned to Mr Amazon.
Compared it with two Oximaters at my GP this morning and my O2 sat is actually OK considering my chest infection - between 96% and 98%, but our new one showed 91%.

Thanks ladies.

Hopefully, the drop in Hb is due to the chest infection and will recover in a few days.

Spent several hours at the Exeter Kidney Unit this afternoon.
Very nice people.

Still have fluid in my lungs. My fault for not cutting-down enough on my cuppas (mugs of tea for the non-Brits).
I typically drink around 2 litres per-day (water and tea). With my kidney function further reduced with the blood loss and chest infection, my poor little kidney has been overloaded and not able to clear the fluid in my lungs.
So, cutting back to 1 litre per-day until the lungs clear.
Chest infection is wearing-off.
Hb is 73, but should start to recover now.

So, there is light at the end of the tunnel.

Great to hear things will be improving for you now, Edwin!

And thank you for explaining the cuppas. Yes, I was lost there. scratch

Hopefully, cutting back on the fluid intake will be the answer here. Fingers crossed for you! Rest up and recover quickly!
