My autoimmune specialist doctor just called and it looks like I still have to go through with the bone marrow biopsy and lip biopsy. She is trying to be very thorough. It is being scheduled for today and I am getting ready to leave. I will have to be in the hospital as they will put me to sleep. Not looking forward to it but it's necessary as my vitamin B12 is at 2000 which should on the high end only be no higher than like 190 or something. The doctor doesn't believe I have a malignancy but it is necessary to rule it out as the heavy duty autoimmune meds can't be taken if you have a malignancy. and since I am doing so well on them they want me to continue The lip biopsy is the second step to see if I have Sojgren Syndrome. I thought I was done with the invasive test but seems not. The good news is that I am feeling good. So send me all your positive vibes and thoughts today as I head out for these procedures.
I might be a bit groggy so you might not hear from me for a bit.
Hope all of you have a wonderful day.
