Bazza blood test rsults

User
Posted 02 Aug 2019 at 19:27

Two weeks after chemo, what had been a 50% reduction rocketed to a PSA level of 95.

rive weeks into radiotherapy and after during the worst insomnia, sickness, diahrea and fatigue, PSA now dropped 50% to 47.5. All other markers look okayish but not sure how to translate from French abbreviations. The ALP level  I think is called phosphotases alcalines and is 75 which, according to the sheet is bang Centre in the mid range of where it should be. More worrying is neutrophils which are up 1000 at 3566 but still, according to the sheet, dead centre. Not sure whether to laugh, cry or whatever?

The rise in neutrophils might be in response to your bout of diarrhea?

If your neutrophils are up that is a good thing. After surgery mine were so low I was diagnosed with neutropenia as it is life threatening— even a cold. I was isolated. Turned out my bipolar meds were causing it. Low neutrophils are common with RT and Chemo so you are actually recovering.

It sounds as if things are much better than you expected and being in the middle seems ok. May we have lots more posts and enjoy the rest of the Sumner time.

Blood test results in the centre of the range is good.

I don’t understand all the results, but if everyone’s saying it’s good, I’d go with that.  Que le Seigneur sort loue!  (Still can’t find the accents on my iPad)

John’s ALP is 178 and his LDH now 478, both indicative of advanced disease. We don’t need these to tell us how he’s doing, which isn’t great. I’d take these results and be happy.

To get accented letters on an iPhone or iPad just hold down the key on the on-screen keyboard. Eg I'm typing this on my iPhone and holding down the e key gives me èéêëēėę.

Oh love, your profile does not make good reading. So it seems you have moved into the final stage although who knows how long that final stage may last. I hope that you at least get a summer of French sun, and maybe a little wine although I think you probably aren't eating much cheese.

Laugh for as long as you can, my dear friend xxx

Bazza, 

It's hard to know what to say. 

I will pray that somehow the pain you're going through will be taken away.

You have inspired me and I'm sure many others with your bravery and the wonderful writing you have shared with us.

Thank you for all you have done.

Bazza, hard to know what to say but had to say a big thank you for sharing your journey with us. It’s been hard for you but your sharing has helped many of us cope with our own battles , physically and mentally. You are much stronger than you think.

Best wishes

No, nothing has been deleted. I saw Flexi had posted so I read Bazza's profile.

Sorry you have reached this point Bazza. You have been an inspiration to so many of us on our own cancer journeys so I thank you for that.

Your writing style and content is so good.

I hope the pain can be managed better if possible by your medical team.
