Be your own advocate with your medications
(12-24-2009, 07:57 PM)chrischris Wrote: Well, I posted yesterday that I had been gone due to a medical prodedure, and as a follow up, I had a Nephrologist appt. today. What he told me was that the "celebrex" is being really hard on my kidneys and wants me to stop taking it. I asked if he had a suggested alternative, and he said, "take nothing" for inflamation, except on a very occassional basis. So from now on this doctor will be monitoring my kidney function and medications.

Why I post this is because WC won't take care of your lab work. It's up to you to keep on top of your health and any conditions that your meds may cause. If you press WC, or your attorney does, maybe they will pay for labs. I know they wouldn't for me. I even had to pay for pre-surgery labs.

Celebrex has always been one that you have to weigh the benefits against the risks. Well it's now too big a risk for me. It's too bad because I really like the relief obtained from celebrex.

I will be doing labs every 3 months now.

I'm so happy though. Today is such a good day!

they never say these things when they put you on it

Merry Christmas to all!
