1.97! are you kidding me

1.97 is my latest creatinine number. I just have to say this freaking blows me away. In year 1, it was over 8, Doc Zoller wanted me to start dialysis and basically bullied me into getting a AV fistula in my left wrist. The fricking thing has never been used and doesn't even work any more. Doc Zoller was probably the most gloom and doom of the doctors I've had. My first experience of being my own best advocate was when I said no to dialysis, given I wasn't symptomatic, despite what the numbers said.

Now I see Dr Froch at Cedars and he's awesome. 1.97 is easily the lowest my creatinine has been since I was diagnosed and I'm super happy about it. It's a reflection of the myeloma being under control. And recall at my last visit with Froch he strongly suggested I get back onto a kidney friendly diet and drop some pounds. I've done both and the numbers show the reward.  That is all.
