5-1-12-Staples Out and Creatnine Stable

Things are progressing well. I got the staples out yesterday and my creatnine is stable at 1.8. The protein in my urine is normal, which seems to indicate that at the moment, the FSGS is leaving the new kidney alone.

The staples coming out was not a big deal at all. I barely felt it. The whole area is still numb from the surgery, which is normal, and the process is pretty quick.

I am very pleased with how well everything is progressing. They have started to reduce some of medicine now that I am at the levels they want. The Prograf has been reduced somewhat and the steroids as well. We think the Prograf is making my migraines more frequent and worse. So I am happy to go down on that. Additionally, I am seeing my neurologist tomorrow.

The only thing left is the stent coming out. Not looking forward to that, but I will be tough.
