I got my blood work back finally!!  The infusion center gave me the results but didn't go over them with me. 

Everything was within normal range except:

Glucose-High-116

MCH-High-33.6 (just over the normal range of 33.0)

Band Neutrophil-High-15 (normal range 0-10)

From what I found the band neutrophils could be high because of a bacterial infection or cancer!!  Is this true??  I have no infection that I know of. 

This blood work was done last Saturday before the Interferon started.  The LDH level came back 166 (range 81-234) so that's good. 

Just wondering what that means! 

Thanks!!

Bloodwork readings relate more to the side effects of the treatment than they do to the actual melanoma.  The way that most bloodwork readings relate to mel is after the mel has effected the way organ function.  (Does this sound a  lot  like the treatment effects to?)

   Of course it's always welcome to have good readings.

I'm me, not a statistic. Praying to not be one for years yet.
