From this study (1 week ago):
I keep reporting not feeling right to my physician. I want to clarify the fatigue comes and goes. But my doctor tests consistently show elevated RBC, Hemoglobin, Bun/Creatine, AST, ALT levels; and low Sodium and Chloride Serum counts. I do have HCV, that was treated on the standard treatment for six months, and levels have not increased for about a year now. I went through a period in 2011 where I had a non-malignant Liposarcoma removed from my upper left thigh, and a malignant carcinoma from my left ankle. Once before, and once after that cancer, I had thrombocytopenia. I would not allow the physicians to do a bone marrow biopsy out of extreme fear. Now, I am experiencing an unusual sensation in the upper left quadrant of my abdomen. I noticed when doing my abdominal routine at the gym a dull pain that feels rather large. This finding has been noticed since I've seen my physician, I will alert her when I go back Mar. 13, 2014. Thank you for any information relating and I hope this can help somehow overall with research.
