Topic: bob's wife three treatments down
Bob just finished treatment number three of gemzar infusion on tuesday. He is still feeling really bad. As far as side effects go he has nausea, vomiting and other. I feel the doc is doing all he can to make this as easy as possible, but it is still hard to watch him and not be able to help much.
I have a question today, I have Bob's test results for liver panel and can't quite understand what I am looking at can anyone put it in layman's terms ? I will only give the numbers that are way off normal.
His numbers read as follows ; alka phos 996, ast 109, alt 110, bilirubin total 110, glucose 130, albumin 3.0, globulin 5.2, a/g ratio 0.6. There are other numbers but these are the worrisome ones. If anyone can explain I would appreciate it very much.
Bob did have to have a procrit shot before treatment this week. The only other thing he has going on right now is fever that is regular as clockwork in the evening that can go up as far as 102, but responds to motrin. He is still not eating much and it is hard to get him to drink enough to replace fluid loss. He really is trying, but food just makes him ill. Thank You all For being here,
