My day 100 was on Friday (Nov 4). My next appointment is my regular weekly appointment and it is tomorrow. I know that some of my results may not be in, but most of them should be. Over the last 3 weeks, my bilirubin went from 0.6, to 1.6 to 1.9 to 2.2. My other liver functions tests are slightly high, but nothing to be worried about really. My lactic dehydrogenase was high too. My red blood cells and Hbg were the lowest they have been since I got out of the hospital.

Without going to anymore details on my labs, this is what I am thinking. My urine is dark, most likely caused by the elevated bilirubin OR from hemolysis of my Red Blood Cells. The lactic dehydrogenase as raises when you have red blood cell hemolysis. So, low RBC, low Hgb, high bili, high LDH and urine being dark no matter how much water I drink, sound to me like my PHN is back or worse.

Does anyone have any information other than let the doctors figure this out? I have an appointment tomorrow and I am scared to death!

Sorry, I don't have any words of wisdom for you. :confused: I hope that your appointment went ok and you're feeling more confident and less fearful today.
