I go to a melanoma specialist and a local oncologist. Last visit to Charlotte the PET/CT scan showed a slow growing nodule on the lung. I go in 2 weeks to have another PET/CT. Meanwhile I went yesterday to my local oncologist. She did blood work and just called. My liver functions are off. The ALT is 178. In Nov. it was 40. The Alkaline Phos. was 140 - she said that was high also, did not catch what it was in Nov.
I am on Zocor 80mg for cholesteral, she said that could be why, but then why wouldn't it have been high in Nov!!! I've actually been off for 2 weeks because I also have mastitis and have been on 2 different courses of antibiotics. Erithromycin 1600 mg a day, and then the z-pack. Zocor and Erithromycin do not work well together. No one warned me at first so for about 6 days I was on them together. I'm allergic to most antibiotics so that was why those were chosen - they didn't work and am being referred to an infectious disease Dr. Could the antibiotics cause the high numbers??
She is having me come back next week to redo the bloodwork. She never calls, always has her nurse call so I know this is not normal.
Can anyone give me some insight? I had been able to keep my anxiety in check for the next PET but it's off the charts right now!
