Apologies for the delay in posting this as I’ve had some issues with the anti-sickness control medication during round 2, that I’ll post on separately.
So here are my last x3 sets of figures, the “JAN” ones being at the end of round 1, just prior to starting round 2 treatment.
These figures were literally “on the day of treatment” because some results taken from a GP blood test Friday the week before didn't give me quite a high enough Neutrophil count at 0.9 to be able to start round 2. Fortunately the re-test on the day got me in at 1.6 (need a measure over 1.0 to start the round)
WBC_________256_____303_____4.4______10^9/L____Normal 4 ->11
Aside: Remember the November and December Neutrophil counts were unexpectedly high and some of you suggested that was probably miscounting of the ALC as Neutrophils. With Normal ALC now I've probably got a good measure.
So apart from the Hg which has risen since the above, all the rest are now in the normal range after only one round. Of course the above does not show the levels in the bone marrow so I can’t skip the forthcoming rounds of treatment.
Low Neutrophils looks now to be the likely issue on future rounds so I’ll include that in the next post.
Other items for January:
LDH = 167 IU/L (normal 90-235) That was 433 before treatment.
GFR = >90 ml/min/1.73m*2 That was previously 76.
P.S. The Snowdrops aren't quite out yet. I also need to plant them properly tomorrow; they are actually in pots at the moment.
Best Wishes to All,
