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.
