Good morning! Yesterday I wrote about having back to back dialysis and Chemo treatments, and as expected it left me wiped out for the rest of the day. I pretty much stayed in my chair and went to bed early at about 9pm.
I feel better this morning at 4:30 which is good because I have another busy day in my trek to beat Multiple Myeloma.
I have an appointment to see a cardiologist this morning as a referral from my oncologists.
There is a concern than my cancer has been spreading to my heart. This is a complicated phase of Multiple Myeloma called Amyloidosis which in simple terms is the spreading of proteins to your heart by the cancer, which can be a bad thing.
The Oncologist is sure this is happening but has told me that it is treatable once he knows the extent of it. That’s what the cardiologist should help with. I’m concerned, of course, but I trust the cardiologist I have.
In the afternoon I have another Chemo treatment but I do not have Dialysis today so I should not feel so horrible after the treatment.
