January 4, 2017 - Day after treatment #2

I'm still on steroids so I am feeling fine.  The treatment went well and apparently my blood work showed that I'm okay to continue.  I noticed some high numbers like glycemic content at 147, which was alarming for someone supposedly on a low sugar diet.  Then I realized that we had just had breakfast consisting of a mostly veggie smoothie and some fruit.  My previous reading of 84 was after fasting.  My vitamin D is in the low range so after asking my doctor, I will be taking 2000 IU of D3 with calcium to ensure best immunity.  My leucocyte number was low and platelet count high, but I don't really know what that means (yet).

I was hoping to get a new PSA and testosterone test, but Dr. Bhangoo said they don't test this until later because the results would have no effect on the treatment plan.  I am just impatient to know that this is working and to know whether my taking Modified Citrus Pectin is helping or hurting the treatment.  I guess I'll have to wait or pay out of pocket for the tests that may not show anything yet anyway.

I'm wearing my new Stetson leather fedora and Kathe says I am "hot".  I don't know about the hot except that my head is warmer.

  1. C'mon. You KNOW you're HOT! ...and as my lyric goes, "When you walk by the girls all turn around. Yeah when you walk by, the girls all turn around.... to see which parts have started saggin' down." No, you're still HOT.
