I got back most of my monthly lab results today. These are the precursor to my Weds Berenson visit. So far everything looks good. Low on hemoglobin, so I got a Procrit shot this morning. This might explain my tiredness today. Creatinine, though, is back down to 3.44. I've been focusing on the renal diet, given the number was creeping up. So I'm quite pleased with that result.
Total protein looks good. Now just waiting on the Upep, which is a measure of the paraprotein (bad protein) in the total protein. I'm anticipating this will fine.
No doubt next week will be the start of cycle 16.
Then we're in 2016.
