Back at the hospital with FL today.
His x-ray had not been "reported", so the Consultant got her student to examine it. It showed that his spine is perhaps slightly more compressed than before, but it is in the same place, so just a bit more crumbling rather than a sign of new myeloma activity. There is perforation of his rib-cage, but again this is nothing new. His neck shows signs of "wear and tear" but that is not unusual for a man of his vintage.
His Freelite test result remains "steady". She didn't give us the numbers, which always makes me suspicious, but she said she was "very happy" with him. So I am going to give her the benefit of the doubt and accept her words at face value!
She offered him Gabapentin for his nerve pain, but he declined. He has weaned himself back off the Paracetamol in the past two weeks, so is on no pain-killers at all. I haven't blogged about this, because we were waiting for today's hospital appointment before we got too excited about his health looking up. But it is! He isn't getting "better", but he is definitely not getting worse, which is more than we could have hoped for. Yay! Party time!
So now we are going to plan a holiday. He says Greece. I say the Western Highlands. Watch this space!
