ND appt and scan

Postby beach sunrise » Fri Nov 17, 2023 4:12 pm

ND appt was kinda reassuring. Better than I thought.
IL-8 is high (promotes blood vessel growth). Could very possibly be micromets as surgery can promote this. So mixing things up a little to bring it back down again.
IL-6 is low but not low enough as we want it. So mixing up things on that one.
Foxp3 is in high normal.
Cuereloplasm is higher than we want it (my cancer feeds on it for some reason).
NK's CTL's are some of the best he has seen. My immune system is working very well to fight micromets.
Omega 3 was low so got to supplement that . Ya, another dang pill or 4 ha.
Scan week after Thanksgiving.
As it goes, new plan, new schedule, more bloodwork, ect ect.

Happy to hear it was at least somewhat reassuring :)
I’ll be praying for best news on your scans next week.

I have mine this afternoon and have never in my life had this much anxiety over something that is out of my control. It’ll be what it will be and I know that. And if I don’t get the best news it just means I’ve gotta find another route and it is possible.

Happy Thanksgiving (I’m very thankful for you!) and let us know how next week goes!
