I decided not to wait any longer, so I called the doctor’s office last night. They seemed surprised that I might be curious to know what all those tests told them. It seems the only thing they did say was that I need more Vitamin B6 in my life.
On the one hand, that was a bit of a let down. 13 vials of blood, one scar, one CAT scan . . . and all you can say is take 100 mg of B6 every day for the next six weeks? So, I bought the B6 and started taking it today. Among other things, it’s supposed to improve my metabolism which is good. I have the metabolism of a fossil.
There you have it. B6. Biopsies are on hold if not canceled. I bleed OK. I’m assuming I don’t have malaria. And I feel like my iron is moving back up to where it should be. I see the doctor in 6 weeks and will perhaps learn if B6 is the key to my health and well being.
