Seen the cardiologist
Thursday, November 13, 2008
Well I had hopes and dreams earlier today but boy did he smash them all to hell! I'm still on the Plavix and he wants to put me on a cholesterol lowering med. I've been off Caudet since May, but I had blood drawn in June and my numbers in just that short of time crept upward. My LDL was at 49 but in a few weeks it jumped to 86. My overall cholesterol was at 105 and it jumped to 152. The rest of the numbers weren't any bettter. I'm just so upset, sad, depressed and pissed that my body just doesn't function the way it should. Everyone of my doctors just love me coming into the office cause I'm such a mystery to them. Cardiologist said for me it is the family history, which is just a doom and gloom family history. I'm not happy about having to be put back on another med and frankly I'm not starting it until the end of the month and that's IF I even start it. I see my holistic doctor the day before Thanksgiving and I want his opinion before I start another med. I have to have another stress test done on Jan. 8 and then I return on the 20th for the results of the test.
Need to finish cooking dinner and then get on the treadmill ran out of time to do anything else today.
