Re: Pathology results.

Your sludge must have been very thick. And yes, 1 month is too soon to put you on meds. Your body needs to set itself if at all possible. You'll be a lot happier than being dependent on the meds.

Re: 2years post op.

I'm surprised you haven't been back to the doctor in all this time! Yes, you should go as they can give you a scrip for medication that will help with this.

Re: Blood Glucose

Fasting blood level should be between 70 and 100. Above that is prediabetic or diabetic and below is hypoglycemic.

Re: breathing and nausea - cat allergy?

If there is a laundry room, that's a better place to put the litter box. The fumes can be rather overwhelming. Or you could get a little box that is enclosed with a lid and has a filter in the top.
