So... I've been getting my blood drawn weekly, sometimes twice a week, since my parathyroid surgery. I had it taken earlier this week and Dr. Lal called and said that my Calcium AND Vitamin D levels were low (you need one to absorb the other). SO... I went back today to get my blood checked and my CALCIUM, VITAMIN D, MAGNESIUM AND PHOSPHOROUS levels were ALL low... AGAIN!!!!!!! I just want to scream! I just got one changed from a liquid to a pill form AND picked up ANOTHER form of Vitamin D to take. Here is what I take on a daily basis...
Calcium Citrate (3 large horse pills/4 times daily)
Calcium Carbonate (4 tums/as needed 4 times daily)
Ibuprofen (1 pill/as needed every 6 hours)
Hydromorphone (1/2 pills/as needed every 4 hours) GONE
Magnesium Oxide (1 pill/3 times daily)
Calcitriol (1.5 ml/twice daily) OR (3 pills/twice daily)(Vitamin D)
Easy Lax (1 pill/twice daily)
Senna (1 pill/twice daily)
Vitamin D (1 pill daily)
Citalopram (1 pill daily)
Omeprazole (1 pill daily)
Ergocalciferol (1 pill/Every Wednesday)(Vitamin D)
K-Phos (3 large horse pills/3 times daily) NOT NEEDED as of yesterday... who knows now, I might have to start taking them again!!! AGH!
So... as you can tell... I have a large amount of medicines in my body on a daily basis! Since Dr. Lal (my surgeon) is out of state, Dr. Ordificio? is supposed to call me and tell me what to do now. I'll keep you posted...
