RE: Newbie Here

Thank for your reasuring words.  I did make it to the appointment and I do not have MM and my bm is making my cells right so it is negative.  The doc did extensive work up and everything is good.  I do have Iron Defiency Anemia almost 100% sure no bleeding internally.  He said when I was in the hospital since they pumped me with so much fluid it deleted the blood cells so it looked like I dropped 2 numbers in less than 12 hours.  From 8.6 - 6.6 something like that.  So I had my first Iron infusion treatment today and one more next week.  Then I go back in 2 months he wants my hgb at 14.  Also he said I might be able to come down on my oxygen I am currently on 4 liters during the day and 5 at night.  I may need to do another round in 3 months.

I was told I had a mass on my right kidney back in 1990 after a misscarraige.  Was sent to a surgen who didn't want to operate just yet.  I went like that for almost 5 yearts until I couldn't work a whole day anymore I was always passing out.  Then my urologist said he would go in and take it out.  In the r corner of this mass was a cyst and they biopsied it every 6 months no signs of cancer, so when he was going to do the surgery it was the last result.  Because they didn't know for sure what they were getting into, they went in from the front my whole kidney was full of cancer and some into the urether.  Stage 1 RCCC.  Removed the kidney, part of the urether, and several lymph nodes.  That was done in 1995 was given the option of Chemo but decided against it.  So I have been cancer free for 24 years.  Had some scares along the way but nothing thank goodness.  My prayers go out to you

I am just getting results in and I am being tested for Multible Meyloma.  I don't know anything but I am getting nervous.  See I have some medical know,edge but I am not a nurse or Doctor I am Medical Assistant.  So a little knowledge goes a long way.  

So anyway, I have Iron Defficency Anemia.  This time I am seeing a Hematologsist in the Ocology clinic.  Now I am not familiar with the Retic counts, the absolute, immature fraction, and the Retic/Hemoglobin Equivelant.  

Then there is the Kappa Free Light Chain @2.82 and Lampda free light chain @1.30 and the Kamppa/Lapda Ration 2.17 B12 is 995 The protein Eletrophoresis shows in it's comments No apprant Monoclonal Protein on Serum Elctrophoresis  I have not had my appointment as of yet not til the 4th and it is driving me crazy.  So am I even in the right place?
