Sitting, Waiting, Wishing

Raise your glasses to another 3 months of sitting around and doing bugger all about my low blood levels.

My haematologist has decided that we will continue to monitor my blood levels. Ya know, because doing nothing for 6 months has been productive so far, why not wait another 3 months before a decision is made.

Essentially this is where we are;

  • My levels of haemoglobin, platelets and white blood cells have all been fluctuating by a few decimal places every couple of months, but all are below the acceptable range.
  • My bone marrow biopsy indicated I have empty bone marrow, i.e. it is not producing blood cells.
  • I have an enlarged spleen.

This has been the case since the 18th of December, I make that 176 days of doing diddly-squat and it will be 266 days or 73% of the year, before any action could be taken.

There was some progress, we have been able to conclude that it is very unlikely to be drug induced, and therefore I have been allowed to start back on one of my tablets. YEAY
