Nah. I don't feel like it. I don't want to write down all my happenings. I want to clearly explain everything but that takes time. I don't feel like explaining things today.
It has been 28 days since my BLA on 12/31/2014. The day of my surgery, I was given 300 mg of hydrocortisone intravenously. I was given 150 mg the next day. I have been tapering down since then. I left the hospital on a dose of 45 mg hydrocortisone at 7:30 am and 15 mg hydrocortisone at 3:00 pm. I added 0.05 mg fludrocortisone, a replacement for the hormone aldosterone, twice a day since I was post-op day 6. Every week or so, I decrease my hydrocortisone dose to something near 15/5. I am getting pretty close so that is good. My doctor will like that, because if I take more than my body needs, the extra hydrocortisone gives me Cushing's again. EEK! NO!
Last Sunday, I dropped my dose again from 20/5 to 17.5/5. I took the former dose for 7 or 8 days. Even that small of a drop takes the wind out of my sails. On Sunday, I woke at 7:30 am and was back asleep for a nap by 11:00 am. This, too, will pass.
I discovered that my dear friend Karen shared her post op BLA experience online and she provides clear explanation.
So today, I'll let Karen explain everything. I hope you feel well again soon.
