Lab Results/Week #13 of 24

on last doctor visit,due to low WBC and RBC, I go every 2 weeks for lab.   April 30 results showed:

  WBC  1.8              On 4/13    2.1
  RBC  3.64                        3.68
  Hemo 11.6                       11.6
  Platelet  110                   109
  Neutrophils  545                695
  AST    31                        36
  ALT    23                        30

All in all I am feeling okay.  Fatigue is extreme at times, but not always.    Dizzy feeling, with breathlessness is common.  Sweeping the floor is an aerobic event.

AST and ALT numbers are good, I feel, especially since pre treatment they were 190/254.  Platelet count rose by +1 (whoopee), and hemo stayed the same.

Are these numbers about the norm for treating with Pegasys and Riba 800 mg.   I do not feel like I am getting worse, but seem to be staying the same. Thank YOU.

If you can maintain those readings for another 12 months, you'll be in good shape. You're able to sweep the floor? That's pretty good, I'm satisified with a path from one room to the nrext.  What about the all-important viral load?

Great!  I meant 12 weeks, not 12 months - a little fuzzy in the noggin.

Your numbers look great. At 13 weeks in this should be about as bad as it gets-sounds like your doing good.
