LIVER CARE FOUNDATION , NEW DELHI by nitinsyal Patient Expert Posted Thu 27 Aug 2009 11:34pm About the Liver The Liver is an organ on the right side of the body weighing about 1.5Kg.

Test results in, and the are GOOD! by Nicolas van Dyk Posted Thu 28 Jan 2010 12:00am 1 Comment Hello people. Getting ready to depart Little Rock. It was a very successful little trip! First, my test results, furnished rapidly, in detail, and without me having to ask for them. * Blood: - White count up to 4.52 (in response to my cold, which is going away with the help of Augmentin, a strong oral antibiotic) - Hemoglobin i ...

Setting the record straight on my MRI by Nicolas van Dyk Posted Wed 30 Jan 2013 12:00am this is one part public service announcement and one part making sure I've got my act together! For some reason, I always want to think there are a "couple" of pits left in my spine.  I was looking through my last MRI, and there are five.  So in order for me to remember this important fact, I'm making a post on it. The public ... Read on »
From the Doctor's mouth... by Nicolas van Dyk Posted Mon 16 Sep 2013 12:00am Every time I think I don't need to worry, I find more to worry about. In the wake of last week's little goof-up with the remission terminology, BJ wrote to advise me that the people filling out those forms don't know the difference between the two diagnoses and I shouldn't worry about it, but instead should focus on what BB says and does. ...

The central character, in this first part, is a healthy 72-year-old white man with smol ... Read on »
Normal marrow and other thoughts, including BBs opinion on the Revlimid scare by Nicolas van Dyk Posted Fri 14 Jan 2011 12:00am First off, everything looks good. Marrow has 50 percent cellularity, 5 plasma cells, 2 percent core plasma cells and is negative for Myeloma. Also, my hip doesn't hurt all that much so the new bone marrower must have done a good job! I got to the clinic early today. I had a 12:45 appointment with BB and, keeping in mind that last time I ... Read on »
What a long, strange trip it's been! (warning: lighthearted scatalogical humor in this storyline) by Nicolas van Dyk Posted Wed 04 Nov 2009 10:07pm So sorry for the delay between responses but as you will no doubt discern, there have been reasons for the delay. I have no intention of giving birth to the Great American Novel, no desire to employ literary devices stolen from Cervantes (a story within a story? no thanks), no need for ornate medical devices tied back into the Merovingian Blood ...

...and why cure matters by Nicolas van Dyk Posted Mon 10 Feb 2014 3:38pm The cure versus control debate has been gaining steam in the past few years. I've been accused of favoring Arkansas in the past, so I will be careful to make the below claims with appropriate caveats and considering all I've learned, and the contributions of others.  For example, I claimed that Barlogie was the first to use Velcade in up-front ...
