DAY 32 AND A VISIT TO TRANSPLANT DOCTOR

HI EVERYONE,
TODAY I WENT TO SEE MY TRANSPLANT DOCTOR AND HE SAYS I WON’T SEE HIM UNTILL DAY IOO BUT HE DID GIVE ME TWO NEW PRESCRIPTIONS- ONE IS ACYLOVIR FOR SHINGLES SINCE I HAVE HAD THEM BEFORE AND BACTRIM FOR ANY THING LIKE PNEUMONIA OR ANY THING LIKE THAT. HE SAYS I WILL TAKE THE BACTRIM 3 TIMES A WEEK FOR MAYBE 6 MONTHS AND HE SAYS IT IS USUALLY WELL TOLERATED BUT IF IT BOTHERS ME WE WILL HAVE TO STOP AS I AM SENSITIVE TO EVERY THING. AS FAR AS FEELING BETTER –YES SOME WHAT I STILL GET WEAK AND TIRED BUT I AM BETTER THAN I WAS. I HAVE MY UPS AND DOWNS. I AM A LITTLE AFRAID TO LET GO OF THE ANZEMET PILLS FOR NAUSEA BECAUSE I WANT TO BE ABLE TO EAT. BUT I MAY
TRY TOMORROW AND NOT TAKE ONE AND SEE WHAT HAPPENS.
MY WEIGHT ACTUALLY HAS GONE DOWN I LOST ABOUT 15 POUNDS. I STILL HAVE A FEW TASTE BUDS PROBLEMS LIKE A COKE STILL DOES NOT TASTE RIGHT TO ME BUT OTHER THINGS DO. BUT I LONG FOR A BIG TALL COKE –ITS JUST NOT HAPPENING YET AND I SEEM TO GET HEARTBURN ALOT. SWEETS DON’T TASTE RIGHT EITHER. BUT I AM EATING THE ALL IMPORTANT FACTOR. I WOULD SAY ENERGY WISE I AM STILL 50 PERCENT. BUT I CAN TELL YOU IT DOES GET BETTER AND I HAVE MET ALOT OF PEOPLE THAT HAVE HAD TRANSPLANTS AUTO AND ALLEOGENIC. IT SEEMS LIKE WE DON’T GET OUR HAIR BACK FOR MAYBE 4 MONTHS. SO MAYBE I WILL HAVE MY SCALP COVERED BY APRIL. IT GETS REALLY COLD WITHOUT HAIR. I HAVE TO WEAR MY BEANIES TO BED EVEN. BUT EACH DAY GETS BETTER. UNTILL NEXT POST. SUSAN
