I saw my oncologist Monday, May 9. She didn't offer another Pet Scan,
because the last 2 scans were negative for cancer. I am due to see her
again in Sept 2011.
I did have a complete blood test. I was able to get some of the results
on Monday. Everything was perfect on the first sheet.
Yesterday, I had to see my regular doctor, internist. A normal visit,
only went because I haven't seen him in 5 months. Anyway, he informed
me the final results came in. There were a few negatives on some tests,
but, he couldn't go into it, because I have to speak with my
oncologist for any questions I might have. All he told me some of the results
were low. I was so mad at him. Right then and there in his office I called the
oncologist. I got right through to her.
Here are the negatives.
lgG 543 low - normal 700 - 1600
lgM 38 low - normal 40 - 230
I asked the oncologist if she was alarmed, and should I return to her office
before my scheduled visit in Sept 2011. She told me no, the results were low
because of the Rituxan I had in Dec 2009. Is that possilbe? So long ago I had
treatment? I am not panicing right now.
Any info would be appreciated. Thanks guys. Love Maggie
