My Life as a Zombie

My doctor continues to poison me. She told me to halve the amount of tacrolimus and start the voroconozole. After four days I felt bad so I reduced the tacrolimus to half of that, 2 mg. a day. I went for my bloodwork to see if the tac was at a therapeutic level. The next day, the office called to say I should stop the medication completely and come to be re-check the tac level. 10-20 is normal; I was at 30. Good thing I reduced the dose.

I have an appointment on March 1st with my new doctor at MSKCC.

If my math is right, your doctor started you at 8mg of tacro? PJ, the woman is a danger to her patients. Would you consider filing a complaint with the medical board? I have my fingers and toes crossed that your new doctor puts you on the right track. In the meantime, I cannot believe what you've had to endure over the last year with your current quack.

Your appointment can't come soon enough. It's lucky you have a good head on your shoulders. Imagine someone following that doctor's advice without questioning it. How about a complaint to her supervisor?

Move on, PJ, and good for you.

I recently came across your blog and have been reading along. I thought I would leave my first comment. I don't know what to say except that I have enjoyed reading. Nice blog. I will keep visiting this blog very often.
