Sodium level has dropped again this time to 19!
I have noticed that it is the sodium level is what has the most effect on how I feel. I started to feel good but now I am feeling terrible. I have that spaced out, confused, dizzy and lost feeling again. It is a bad way to feel I can assure you. Just wish they could get on top of this sodium properly I hate feeling like this!
The danger with the sodium is that if it drops much more it could send me into a coma!
Platelets count for today is 240,000 dropped a little but that's not too bad.
I am not happy to hear this.
The platelets count is not bad. When it goes down below 150,000 then it becomes serious.
The doctors need to find a way to get the sodium problem fixed so it will stabilize at 130+.
There is a reaction in your metabolism that somehow makes the sodium level drop for some odd reason and then it goes up again.
I will look up information on sodium level later today see what I can find.
I hope you had some breakfast this morning and they will bring you lunch. It is important that you eat. They should be feeding you according to proper dietary restrictions matching your condition which I am sure they are doing.
We are all very concerned about your well being.
The thing is I have hardly touched food for 3 days now. Mostly because of this problem with the sodium
Here's the bullshit. I just talked to one of the nurses about how bad I was feeling with my sodium level being low. She wanted to bleep the doctor to come and look at me. But the senior nurse in charge today is a bitch and overrode her decision of wanting to bleep the doctor. As if that was not enough she then came and had a go at me, saying it was not my place to make demands about bleeping the doctor and that they were aware of my blood counts and if they needed to do something about it they would. I then pointed out that I had made no demands and that the nurse was the one who suggested that at which point she gave me a foul look and stormed out! So in her eyes it is fine for someone to be suffering this.
Unbelievable attitude. Where is the element of care?
I'm sorry you have to put up with a bitch like that Nigel, you have enough to contend with at the moment bud
