Hello, I thought Iíd post an update.
For the first time in over two years my hemoglobin has risen by itself without a blood transfusion. It went from 88 to 99 in two weeks. Also my neutrophils are above 1.5 for the first time since I can remember. Sitting at 2.4...were 1.1 two weeks ago.
My doctor doesnít really believe the results and thinks there was a mistake but Iím over the moon.
The only downer is that my liver isnít very happy with abnormal enzymes..not too bad though.
I have a cancer centre appointment tomorrow and for the first time in a long time Iím looking forward to it.
The ONLY thing Iíve been doing differently is changing my diet to include a lot of fruit and vegetables. I normally eat well anyway but Iím going out of my way to snack on raw fruits and vegies even when Iím not hungry. Maybe itís a co incidence and maybe the blood test result is an anomaly but Iím taking it and runnng with it. Nice to have some good news for a change.
Oh, and the heart failure...itís only mild, so that too, is not so bad. I recently researched my chromosome abnormality and saw it has been linked to poor prognosis myeloid malignancies..so given that criteria I think Iím doing better than expected. Long may it continue.
Even my dog can tell Iím relieved.
