Well he seems to have nosebleeds that are really affecting the quality of life. He has them cauterized, rhino rockets, chemical cauterization but they have had to give him platelets twice now to get them to stop. He and my mom would like to be able to travel a little in their motorhome but dare not venture out considering this happens twice a week or so.
I'm not sure what can be done about the nosebleeds. He sees an ENT after his ER trips. I imagine if there was something that could be done he (the ENT) would suggest it.
MD Anderson has a Pronostic Scoring System that gives survival times and I'm just wondering how would we get the details on that.
Otherwise he is not nauseous or otherwise incapacitated by the medicine. It would be nice to see them use the motorhome before he passes as he just retired.
Ok. We can do that.
He is taking a few supplements that I thought would help.
Curcumin for inflamation
another for liver detoxing
and just trying to eat properly. I've been trying to get him to purchase some intense vitamins like Juice Plus etc...
It's olive leaf extract and my mom says she doesn't think he is taking it regularly.
Is the NRBC count the number of blasts in the blood. Are nucleated red blood cells the blasts?
What is the blast count than? Will it just say "blast"?
well there's all sorts of stuff here I didn't include. Do any of these stand out to you?
