|My Test Result Table||Best with a wide browser window. Very "technical."|
|Test||May 29||Jun 26||Jul 24||Aug 22||Remarks|
|IgG mg/dL||1260||1450||1330||1040||Variation is normal|
|M-spike g/dL||1.2||1.1||1.1||1.0||Best tumor measure|
|L FLC mg/dL||4.25||4.03||3.30||3.57||Down is best|
|Calcium mg/dL||9.7||10.1||9.7||9.3||Below 1.2 is best|
|Creat mg/dL||1.1||1.0||1.0||1.3||Kidney, lower is better|
|HGB g/dL||14.5||14.8||14.3||13.8||Hemoglobin, a bit low|
|RBC M/uL||4.23||4.28||4.17||3.99||Red cell count, low|
I'm no longer concerned about lambda free light chains (L FLC). Calcium is dandy. Creatinine is up, but it has been this high in the past. Hemoglobin and red blood cell count are down, but they have been lower. Albumin (liver function, not shown) is normal.
I feel so very lucky, still able to finish a half marathon when I know so many myelomiacs who could not. Live one day at a time and make it a masterpiece!
