October 15, 2013

Last week I noted that my Kappa Light Chains, collected on 9/23/2011, had been significantly elevated at 3.93 mg/dl (from 2.56 mg/dl on 8/12/2011). This was disturbing; however, the higher values came from a different lab. On October 7, the labs were repeated at the lab that I typically use. This time, the Kappa Light Chains were 2.82 mg/dl. This is not far different than the values that I had back on 8/12/2011 (2.56 mg/dl),3.26 mg/dl on 5/18/2011, and 2.68 mg/dl on 4/20/2011.

My Igg values increased to 1622 mg/dl; however, they were 1606 mg/dl on 4/20/2011.

My M-spike is now 1.4 mg/dl.

Everything appears to inching upward; but not as rapidly as the 9/23/2011 lab results suggested.

I am on dex twice a week (10 mg on Sat and Wed).

CBC values are ok wbc, total protein, creatinine,hemoglobin, hematocrit, platelet counts, neutrophils, and RBC are all in normal range.

Will see the O/H in early November; for the time being, no chemo (other than the dex) is scheduled.

  1. Yes, it is really important to have labs that seem 'out of bounds' retested and I'm glad things are being managed for you. Intending this continues for you.
