Follow-up on the MGUS

I talked about my bloodwork and upcoming (then) appointment with the doctor. I said something about some numbers being high.

As it turns out, I’m not qualified to make predictions based on my own lab reports. Who knew?

The doctor (an expert) said that my numbers are stable. She did not order another bone marrow biopsy or skeletal survey. She told me to come back in 6 months to be checked again.

So I had my husband worried for no reason. I’m not sure why he thought I knew what I was talking about. He knows I’m not a doctor.

The moral of this story is don’t look at your lab results before a professional can tell you what they mean.

Will I do the same thing again next time?

We shall see.
