Kidney specialist appt yesterday


Was quite an effort getting there as I still wasn't feeling very well. Decided to take all my pills when I got home as sometimes they can make me dry retch. Got there OK and saw the guy for the first time. A professor.

He got more blood and urine taken and I have to get an ultrasound of the kidneys. I remember getting that done from Emergency the last time I had problems. They poke you with this thing like when they do an ultrasound on pregnant women. Go back in a week or two after getting that done.

Explained some of what had happened last time to the professor. He was surprised I'd been on dialysis for two months. I guess I don't look like your average chronic kidney failure patient.
