Not that it did much to put a stop to the way I’ve been feeling the past several days [or weeks], but I received the results of my latest blood test, and all was good. Well at least it was all the same as it has been.
Sure my lymphocyte count was still high, but no higher or lower than it’s been for the past 3+ years, as was my hemoglobin, platelets and just about everything else.
Even my creatinine phosphokinase (CPK) was fine. That was a test ordered by my primary care physician (PCP) because of some unusual bone and neck pains I was experiencing as of late, which I was thinking may be caused by the Lipitor I’m currently taking for cholesterol.
So now all I have left to worry about are the intermittent pains I’m continuing to experience in my chest. My PCP doesn’t think it’s angina, suggesting it could be the result of nerve damage from the CABG surgery, but has authorized another treadmill test, to hopefully rule out any problems.
I always thought I should have had another treadmill test sooner than later, so this seems like as good a time as any! We’ll see if that does anything to improve my mood. Assuming the results are all good that is!
