Woohoo! I've been randomized!! : FSGS Sucks

I just got word today that I've been randomized for the clinical trial, and I got the Humira arm of the study!!!  This was certainly the one that I wanted as it seems like the best chance of reducing my proteinuria.  Wouldn't it be great if a Lilly drug helped me??  The irony of it all...

I also started working out again today.  Even though my feet and legs are ridiculously swollen, I figure I gotta give it a try.  I crammed my feet into my shoes and waited for a bit for the water to re-distribute.  I only did about 20 minutes on the elliptical, but it's a start.  I'm hoping that exercising will eventually help to lessen the swelling.    It can't hurt to try, right?

  1. Not what you're going to want to hear, but I find exercise makes my swelling worse :( However, if I can lose weight, that should help with creatanine levels and proteinura, so eventually, yeah, it should help!

It's been a little over a  month since my fistula surgery, and I had my ultrasound this past Wednesday. I went into this thing thinking ...
