Fay A. Posted December 11, 2005 Share Posted December 11, 2005 Had a little problem with the contrast dye used in Friday's CT scan...resulted in a serious direct hit to my kidneys and liver coming on the heels of chemo. I've lost over 10 pounds in the past 6 hours, but I'm not in need of IV therapy yet. Folks, you can help balance your hydration by mixing one part gatorade, one part water, a pinch of salt, and drinking it or making it into ice cubes/crushed ice. Or drink Pedialite (?). Also, keep bananas on hand as they're good sources of potassium. If all else fails eat potato chips and drink lots of water, even if it does make you feel like you have small knives under every inch of your skin. Back to the cave....
