Liver vs. mega-steroids smackdown

This morning’s liver panel showed large increases in my liver enzymes, and my bilirubin shot from 4.1 last week to 12.7 today. That was considered dangerous enough to bring me back in late this afternoon to load me up with a high dose of intravenous steroids (Methylprednisolone 500 mg). I go back tomorrow for another infusion. Monday, I’ll have another liver panel and meet with my oncologist.

  1. I think this is one of my favorite “post titles” ever. There’s something about a good “smack down” that just sounds very satisfying!! Perhaps it just appeals to the cantankerous side of my personality. If the steroids are driving you crazy in the middle of the night and you want to vent, text me. I can’t guarantee I’ll be awake but it’s prob a 50/50 chance.
