Got a Medical Question? Ask a Doctor Online!
Hi Doc: Yes, WBC 7.5, RBC 4.62, hemoglobin 14.8, hematocrit 44.7, all within normal range.
Hi Dr. Phil: The rheumatologist said it was MGUS (forgot to mention), yet I'm wondering why he made the odds for Myeloma so high? From what I've read online, the chance is only 1% per year. Thanks so much for your help.
So if the hematologist want to do more than just additional blood work, i.e. a bone marrow biopsy, I'm wondering if it's necessary?
Thank you, XXXXX XXXXX I feel a little more relieved prior to my hematologist visit next Wednesday. Best wishes to you for a happy holiday!
