2017-06-11 Recovery Day 97

Today’s good news, overall today was not a bad day, on the medical side I was doing the 24 hour blood creatinine level test, a test of kidney function. The kidneys’ ability to handle creatinine is called the creatinine clearance rate, which helps to estimate the glomerular filtration rate (GFR) — the rate of blood flow through the kidneys. On the non-medical side I did my resting and periodically walking.

As to the bad news for today, not really bad news, more related to the cutting back on the breakthrough medication from 8mg to 4mg, every 3 hours. There were periods of the 4mg doing the job and a few times were it did not. However, using the breathing method I was able to deal with the short period of increased pain level. Let’s see how it will be during the week ahead.

That’s it for today, dinner is ready and afterwards I will enjoy a good movie as part of my evening rest period before going to bed.
