My liver numbers are moderately worse. The two big steroid infusions Thursday and Friday didn’t solve the problem yet. But the nurses today were more concerned at the virtual disappearance of my white blood cells.
I haven’t talked with my oncologist yet as he got stranded in Chicago on his way home from vacation. Suddenly questioning his wisdom if he connects through O’Hare.
The current plan: stay away from people, take 100 mg of prednisone per day, take Cipro antibiotic twice a day, (tomorrow) get an echocardiogram, and then get a two-hour Remicade infusion. The Remicade is supposed to shut down any lingering effects of the Keytruda. So if the Keytruda is responsible for ruining my liver, perhaps it will start to improve.
On Wednesday I finally see my oncologist. I hope to learn how dangerous my condition is and what I can expect.
