Bone Marrow Biopsy Scheduled – March 8 2012

I saw Dr. Myint today and I have most likely relapsed with a m-spike of 0.59 (done in Idaho on 27 February 2012). Dr. Myint had all the labs including the SPEP repeated today at UCH and I will know the results early next week. I will have a bone marrow biopsy tomorrow morning. The results of the bone marrow biopsy will take 1 week and will be the main determining factor on whether I have relapsed.

Lab results for March 8 2012. Interestingly, my LDH and CRP are normal here at UCH today where they were high in Idaho. However, I’ve had 2 doses of Velcade/Dex 20mg since they were high on 27 Feb 2012.

However, an increase in my Immunoglobulin G to 818 is of concern to Dr. Myint. In this record overtime below, my auto-stem cell transplant was 9/13/11.My white blood cell count was 4.2 on March 8 2012 and 3.5 on March 9 2012 (norms 4-11.1). My platelets are low at 129 on March 9 2012 and 118 on March 9 2012 (norms 150-400), and my hemoglobin is near norm at 11.4 (12.1-16.3).Comprehensive Metabolic Panel March 8 2012.
