Got my Myeloma Markers back yesterday when I was at Chemo. They show an unremarkable steadiness and a slight improvement. Any time you can improve is a good thing – but for this OVERACHIEVER – I want more!
I feel great – going to spin this morning, then off to a world of youth sports for my kids. So without further ado…
M Spike is at .49 – lower than the .57 from last month but the response this time around has not been as dramatic. Looking for zeroes!
IGg = 900 – This is a normal reading and lower than last month’s as well. This is the one we pay attention to.
IGa = 72 – Normal
IGm = 40 – Normal
Kappa Chain Protein = 20.81 – Still too high (19.40 is normal) but lower than last month’s 21.97
Lambda Chain Protein = 11.10 – Normal
K/L Ratio = 1.875 – Still high (1.65) but lower than last month’s 2.525 as well
SO…. as I said last month … SLOW AND STEADY WINS THE RACE … It is not the speed of remission I need but the deepness. I have until January (when I have my SCT) to get into good deep remission. OVERACHIEVERS…SADDLE UP!
Enjoy your Sunday everyone. I will report back after I consult with Dr. J
