Happy Sabbath Doctor!!
Last night my mom told me she though I needed to get a prescription for potassium. She said because of the surgery we had the gastric bypass it depletes us. She said she gets light headed and dizzy when she doesn't take hers. She also said she takes like 5000 mg of B12. What do you think doctor?
I am looking and the last lab work says potassium 3.9 level
vitamin B12 is 789.
Doctor what is Anion gap it say 16 H
What is creat serum it says 0.8 with a circle around the number.
ok great thank you. Today I had a blessing at Church and while it was being given to me the spirit witnessed to me to do what you instructed me to do. Call tomorrow one of the teaching hospital and make an appointment with the Neurology department. So I will do that at Stanford university in Palo Alto first think tomorrow. If I need ENT specialists as well can they send me to someone there as well?
Doctor, which one of these should I call? here is a listing of what they have at Stanford Hospital / Stanford Clinic in Palo Alto California?
I copied and pasted this website. Do you think I should try to schedule the endoscopy and colonoscopy first? They give you some stuff to drink to empty the bowels will that cause heartburn? And will I be able to still take my zantac twice a day? even though its just fluids for a couple of days?
I was thinking that I should get the endoscopies out of the way it appears I have multiple issues going on. Am I correct that these are separate issues?
I will try to get it scheduled today. So I just realized something since we have been talking. I am having more of a balance issue then dizzy issue.
Its weird sometimes I have better days and some are worse. If I get upset it gets worse or if it is hot outside its worse.
okay I just made the appointment and it is for Monday May 6 at 12:15 and the test actually will be at 1:15 pm. I am scared but I will do it because I need to get one hing fixed at a time. And I now know what to do to try and fix other issues.
I am good ...I got up and took a shower and went to sleep. I think it was gas not sure it went away and didn't come back.
Have a good week Doctor.
I didn't get a response form you so I am not sure if you received the message I sent to you earlier. I work out of town every week I stay 1 block from this teaching hospital:
Should I try to get into this hospital or the other one Stanford University?
One more thing I take all of my vitamins first thing in the morning on a empty stomach can that have anything to do with my heart burn or ulcers ??
