Blood tests came through, but I haven't seen them and it's Nick who talked to the doctor this evening. I have a huge inflammation (is that the same as an infection?) somewhere.

My GP is faxing the results to the oncologist tomorrow morning and then we're supposed to telephone the hospital. GP thinks it's the result of stopping the anti-inflammatories, but that doesn't make any sense since I've had whatever this is since before I stopped.

More tomorrow. Sigh.


  1. I'm just catching up. You've been a busy bee posting this week, haven't you?
    Inflammation is swelling. Infection is some sort of bug wreaking havoc-bacteria, virus, fungus, etc. Infections can cause inflammation, but not all inflammations are caused by infections.
    That probably doesn't make much sense, but I'm sick, so I have an excuse.
