Stent Removed

I had a stent connecting my kidney and bladder. I guess it was supposed to keep the "tube" connecting the two open so I could pee. Anyway, it was removed on Wednesday. It was pretty easy. They gave me some "Jaco-juice" (Propofol) and I don't even remember seeing the doctor. Good thing. I was nervous once I saw the stirrups!


I keep gaining. I'm back to my pre-surgery weight (119). Still got some more to gain. Jason and the doctors think I should be at 140. I'd rather shoot for 135!


Saw the rheumatologist on Monday. She was nice and very thorough. She drew a ton of blood to see that I really do have Sjogrens and if it's active. I'll go back in two weeks to go over the results and come up with a plan. I like how she operates...get all the facts before you do anything.

  1. My Rheumatologist thinks I have Sjogrens: my eyes and mouth are dry as dust, my ANA is positive, I have joint pain and edema, but all my other antibodies are negative. I'm supposed to get a Schirmer test in December to test tear production.
