I am NOT going home today.
All my optimism came to nothing.
Stupid doctors. Apparently my kidney function is up now, which they would have seen if they had have looked at my blood tests this morning when they came back. The only one they have to wait til 4 for is the anti-rejection levels. And why are my kidney functions up? And how high are they? Who knows, because they didn't bother coming and telling me themselves, they just passed a message through the nurse and ran off home so they didn't have to answer their pagers for them to come and actually explain the problem to me.
I am really fucking pissed off.
As far as I'm aware, contrast dye for CT scans and MRIs is processed through the kidneys. I've had three doses of contrast dye this week and today when I had the scan I mentioned it and the radiologist asked if I had been put on fluids to flush it out, which I hadn't. I mentioned it to my doctor today and he said just drink lots of water. My blood test this morning was before the CT scan. So tomorrow it's only going to be higher if that's what's causing it. And if that's what's causing it I am going to be well and truly ropable.
Soooooooooooooooo SOOOOOOO tempted to just discharge myself.
