LexieCat Posted January 23, 2021 Share Posted January 23, 2021 So I went for another maintenance infusion yesterday and saw my NP (next visit will be with scans and visit to oncologist). My blood counts were OK, but not all the labs had come back before the infusion. So the NP called later when she got the labs back. My sodium is a bit low, so she wants me to have more salt (mind you, I've been trying to watch it because my BP has been running a tad high, plus occasional edema). Also, my magnesium was low, so she recommends more dark chocolate in my diet, as well as cashews. So do you think I can write off the cost of my Godiva purchases? Funny thing is, I've been having dark chocolate almost every day, and I totally LOVE (salty) cashews (and almonds), but given my weight gain since I started treatment, I may have to make those my primary dietary intake and cut out the meats and dairy. In other news, I have cataract surgery scheduled for Feb. 12. That's gonna involve rounding up three rides--from home to outpatient surgical center, from there to ophthalmologist for post-op exam and then home. I'm OK taking ONE Uber or Lyft, but three in one day feels like I'd be pushing my luck (even though I'll have my first COVID vaccine next week). I'll probably put an ask out on FB and see if one or more of my friends could help out. I hate to ask individually and put someone on the spot.
