I have my October blood test results and I’m pleased to report that my cancer levels dropped.
M Protein (g/L)
Oct = 2.3
Sept = 2.8
Aug = value missing
July = value missing
June = 1.9
May = 1.7
Apr = 2.5
Mar = 3
The M Protein is a complete and accurate measure of the cancer/myeloma in my body, it consists 100% of abnormal protein. A zero value means no cancer is detected in my blood. The Beta 2 and igG measures I’ve previously discussed, contain good and abnormal protein and therefore aren’t as accurate.
My Hematology profile (how my body responds overall to being on treatment) looks good.
|Reference Range||4.0 – 11.0||135 – 170||150 – 400||2.0 – 8.0|
I’m maintaining a positive outlook on life!
To recap: On Sunday, October 9th, I completed Cycle 22 Week 3. I have Multiple Myeloma and anemia, a rare blood cancer. It is incurable, but treatable. From February to November 2013, I received Velcade chemo through weekly in-hospital injections as an outpatient. Since February 9th 2015, I have been on Pomalyst and dexamethasone chemo treatment (Pom/dex).
Weekly chemo-inspired self-portraits can be viewed in my flickr album.
