As I wrote a couple of weeks ago, I' ve had my third bmp, and the second with biopsy. The biopsy has not been analyzed yet, but the haematologist has done a microscopy. He called me last sunday, and told me that he was still confused. He said that he was going to have his colleagues to look at it. On monday, he called back and said that I should take some further blood tests (parvo, helicobacter and lysozyme (lyzosome??) ), as the monocyte count is a little bit high. 1,6 E09/L ((Ref value 0,2-0,8).
As I'm on prednisolone tapering schedule for Polymyalgia Rheumatica, (which I got last summer after pbeumonia) he's a bit conserned, as this might disturb the test. Thrombocytes are also very low. Many other countings are outside th reference area also.
I don' t know when all this started. I have Sjogren's Syndrome also, and I have had dry cough for many years. Therefore, I didn't react very much ehen the cough got worse last may after having attended an international symposium. But I went to the ECU at last, and was diagnosed with pneumonia. Since then, the blood tests have been all over the place. Waiting for a final result is driving me crazy!
