Like it says above, I am getting over my illnesss slowly, havn't had tx for 2 wks as blood tanked, getting Neupogen every Monday. I have never a such a hoarse, gravely, fading voice during my many respiratory infections.

It almost feels like my voice is going to change for good.
When I speak up and out I sound like Rochester on the Jack Benny show,, after speaking for a long time it breaks up and gets real hoarse.

Peace and Health

Sorry you've been having such a hard time.  And you were excited about your new docs, too!  

My Hgb's down to 9.2 but no Procrit for me (because of being on study), and I had that awful stomach virus too, it lasted for more than 10 days.  It sux feeling bad, huh?  

I wondered why we hadn't heard from you lately.  At least online you don't have to talk, lol.  Sending you lots of warm best wishes, hoping you feel better soon!

I am feeling better day by day, thanks.
Bloodwork is closer to the normal ranges, not where it was before I started tx, but better.
I wonder if the Neupogen is causing a lot of the throat/voice problems and maybe the diarrhea and stomach cramps I have been having.

I believe that since I have been getting the Neupogen, my hair has been acting sort of wild, and I don't think that is my dog Luke's hair in the sink.

Peace and Health
