Month 7 blood results

As it's getting so big now I've hidden the first 4 months results so it fits on the page properly, The full spread sheet is uploaded to the files sections on both the UK and Ireland and the World Lemtrada groups on Facebook :-)
If anyone needs help getting their results into a nice easy to see format please drop me a message, I'm glad to help.


So the Lymphocytes are rising again (probably because I've been completely off my diet and enjoying wine :-) .....)
I've also got the winter lurgy so my body is fighting that right now ..... my conversation with my MS nurse this morning by email went like this :




Am I feeling better - LOL …. Now that’s an open question J
Yes I feel better than I did on Friday The pressure in my ears has gone completely (TFFT) – the never ending stream of snot seems to have dried into a cement ball behind my eyes which has resulted in a never ending headache made worse by the coughing and sneezing which rattles the cement ball around in my head. Oh and those gland’y things under the chin ….. like a pair of golf balls J
If there’s a bright side to having MS and an over active immune system it’s that I’m almost NEVER sick – I had chicken pox in 2003 but that’s the last time I ‘caught’ something – to be honest I think it’s is self-inflicted – burning the candle at both ends and in the middle a bit – staying up too late, wine, sitting outside with an iPad, wine, cigarettes in the cold etc – body has just decided if I won’t slow it a little then it’s gonna make me
I’m an appalling sick person -  because it’s so rare I moan about it constantly and want to punch things J xx


My MS nurse is awesome :-)


Anyway here they are - Lymphocytes now at a MASSIVE 0.88 at month 7 post - woohoo go Lymphocytes - but slowly :-) not concerned about the other bits that are a little elevated - lurgy fighting takes a little 'more'

Time for an update another round of Ocrevus in the bank

 So it's been a long time (again) I'm going to stop making hollow promises and just say I'm going to keep updating and won't...
