I urgently need advice, I have been extremely ill, too weak & fatigued to get back in to doctor.
I am in increasing pain, especially in lumbar/sacral/coccyx spine area.
There is a tumor on my low lumbar cauda equina area found by MRI w/contrast last year & nerve damage with compression found by nerve testing, and bladder dysfunction/retention (self-cath since last year when all this started.
My blood test results a month ago showed iron overload of iron transferrin sat. 68% (iron overload over 50%). I dont take anything with iron in it, so unknown why suddenly so high.
Also Neutropenia- Manual Diff. showed Seg Neutrophils at 28%, the other WBCs low on man. diff also. they continued to lower for a year now and this is the lowest they have been.
Also irregular shaped RBCs, and high lymphocyte count.
Does anyone know what could cause this & if any of these counts (high iron or low wbcs is urgent to be checked out?) And does any of this possibly indicate bone/bone marrow problem?
I havent been able to get ahold of doctor yet regarding the blood test results & need biopsy of tumor, but i have been just getting sicker and weaker. Too sick for biopsy of spine.
Any idea on possible causes of those blood results & if could be related to tumor or metastasis/cancer?
Any info./advice would be greatly apreciated, and if these blood tests are urgent to be checked into further?
