I was diagnosed with renal cell carcinoma 4 years ago. I had a right radical nephrectomy. My cancer scans are clear. As a result of my surgery I am monitored regularly. I have high blood pressure. I am taking Amlodopine 5mg, Bisoprolol 1.25mg, Losartan 100mg, Lansoprazole 30mg.
I was taking Ramopril 10mg but I had to come off this due to the cough. This was approx 7 weeks ago. My bloods were taken then and my creatinine was 1.24. A new blood test was taken a week ago to make sure the Losartan was not compromising my remaining kidney. My creatinine level is now 1.33. I feel rather disconcerted with the seemingly rapid increase in creatinine levels within 6 or do weeks.
Can you advise me on whether it is because of the change of drug, should I be unduly concerned and can I reverse this level?
Many thanks.
