Tomorrow I’m going in for labs and an iron infusion. I’ll ask them to pull B12 - that’s one I haven’t been checking. And I know someone mentioned one other thing, was it D3 maybe?
I know last labs, my magnesium and iron were below normal range. Potassium was super low side of normal. I’ve definitely struggled with potassium and magnesium from the beginning of my treatment - I take supplements for both. They’ve been low for so long it seems unlikely that they would suddenly have that impact, but maybe??
I’ll be interested to see if I’m low on anything else and how I feel coming out of tomorrow’s infusion...
I like bananas so maybe I should go have one!
I would ask for D test too. CRC patients are notoriously low in Vitamin D. I started out so low it was below the detectable range! Now Dr. K has me on a supplement and I get tested with my labs every 3 months.
Let me know what your labs today looked like. I'm curious...

I’m sure it happened because I’ve been hobbling around trying to compensate for my various aches and pains. Plus carrying my laptop in my purse - I really feel it when I sling the bag over my arm.
I am going to blitz myself with pain meds in hopes I can get it to go away enough to resume a normal range of motion.
Other than my shoulder, I’m feeling pretty good after my iron infusion.
