Numbers Don't Count (On Me)
More blood tests. Unfortunately, his ALT count (liver enzymes) is still high due to the chemo, and probably the Rimadyl. Dr. Hedlin was out on Monday when we came in for his leg but when she saw him yesterday, she agreed that it’s probably a CCL injury. The oncologists at CSU want to delay his second dose of Lomustine (CCNU) until the numbers improve. He’s not a good candidate for surgery to repair the CCL while his blood work is off. Dr. Hedlin suggested a leg brace in the interim to help provide stability.
