Unfortunately, it must be administered by IV, so I am once more in the hospital. The antiviral is cidofovir and although it's job is to cure my kidneys of this nasty infection, it is also toxic to my kidneys. So I also have a second drug, probenecid that somehow protects my kidneys.
I'm having my second dose now and so far so good. I had a headache and some nausea, but not as much as I had been worried about. I'll be having future doses at an infusion center as an outpatient which will be more convenient.
My kidneys are being closely monitored as well. Here are the results for the last three days:
Creatinine 1.65, 1.69, 1.77
BUN . 58, 47, 42
My blood sugars are remaining stable except for an insertion site mishap. I'm giving up on the Mio insertion device.
