Today I went to the lab to get blood work done. The lab results would show whether the chemo treatment I’m on for my Multiple Myeloma continues to lower my cancer levels. I’m happy to report that they have lowered slightly to 6.9 igG.
Today – 6.9 igG
August – 7.3 igG
July – 8.2 igG
My counts (how my body is responding to chemo treatment):
White Blood Cells 2.3
Blood Platelet Counts 243
The blood test today was uneventful – that is always good. Sometimes I have had problems in the past, but the technician commented on my good veins before starting, which was encouraging.
Tomorrow I will start Cycle 7 of my Velcade chemo. I’m staying positive, although life is pretty rough right now.
Just to give a recap, I am living with Multiple Myeloma (blood cancer). Since February 2013, I have been on my 4th chemo treatment called Velcade, which are weekly in-hospital injections, in addition to a variety of other pills I take to supplement my chemo treatment. You can read the background on my diagnosis and previous treatments on my blog.
