On Wednesday of this week I went to the transplant clinic for my usual check up. My last one was two months ago. I saw the consultant who dealt with me through most of my transplant and whom I hadn't seen for a while so it was nice to catch up with him.
When I went to the transplant clinic a few weeks ago I asked the consultant about coming off the amlodipine blood pressure tablets as I had only been put on them because the ciclosporin caused my BP to rise.
- Penicillin to help with bacterial infections as bone marrow transplant patients often have under-active spleens. (1 x 250mg twice a day )
- Thyroxine to help with my under-active thyroid gland. (1 x 150mcg once a day )
- Hydrocortisone to help with my under-active adrenal glands. (20mg Morning, 10mg evening ).
It seems an age ago but New Year's Day was just under 3 weeks past so a Happy New Year to all my readers.
