June blood test results – Reasonably stable

I’m extremely late again with posting my June blood test results (from 4 weeks ago). I’m getting my energy back each day and still get fatigued due to my cancer. My cancer levels (m protein) were 5, up a bit from May when they were between 3 and 4. However, this is still pretty good, as they are reasonably stable, and remain single digits. I’m feeling alright and remaining positive about life.

M protein (g/L) (if 0, then no cancer detected)
June= 5
May = between 3 and 4
Apr = 3
Mar = between 1 and 2
Feb = 3
Jan = between 5 and 6
Dec = between 5 and 6
Nov = 11
Late Oct = 27 (started chemo)
Early Oct = 48

I’ve been reflecting on how alive I feel each day and how I enjoy doing things. I remember how I would get so fatigued doing nothing, a short time ago.

June blood test results - Slight increase, but still single digits

I have multiple myeloma and anemia, a rare cancer of the immune system. Multiple myeloma affects the plasma cells, a type of immune cell that produces antibodies to fight infection. These plasma cells are found in the bone marrow. As a blood cancer, it is incurable, but treatable.

From mid-October to late-May, I was treated with Kyprolis (carfilzomib), an IV chemo, Cyclophosphamide, and dexamethasone.
