Hello everyone,

I am happy to say that I played golf today for the first time since starting Tx in June. It finally "cooled" off here in South
Florida. I even played in the middle of the day and played well and it felt good to be able to play golf during treatment. I wasn't sure how well I would be able to take the midday sun. I don't mean to waste a posting here to talk about golf, but what I am trying to say here is that lately I have been under lots of stress and going out and playing golf was good for the mind. And for those of you in Tx I think it's a good idea for you to go out and be active as much as physically as you can. And lately with the news that I have my ABS neutrophils being very low, today was very refreshing. And I would also like to say that my insurance company has approved Neupogen so it looks like I'll be taking it shortly. Once again, hope everyone is doing fine and God bless.

Never let tx stop you from doing anything you love doing. I'm in wk46 of tx and I won't let it stop me. I golfed all year in my league (I took a cart instead of walking) Went on vacations (including Fl) and just came back from traveling from Conn to Mass to VT to Ny all in one weekend

The concern about B12 being stored in the liver was Carpedi's doctor, not mine. I'm just a little paranoid about rocking the boat now because it seems every time I put something new down the hatch or in the blood I get side effects. I still may try the B12 shots. Anyway I added "homosysteine" to my labs today so I'll also see how that goes. Glad the shots worked well for you. I agree that they're probably not toxic.

Speaking of "toxic", tina-b you have me concerned about toxic ferritin levels. Can you point me to a reference? I'd appreciate it.

I played (9) for the second time since tx started in July.  The first time wiped me out for days.  Since then I've been building activity slowly, more walks, longer, swimming etc.  Sometimes I actually think I'm learning to fucntion with TX, not something I ever set as a life goal - but you do what you can.  I just try to do a little more each day.

BTW, also in South Florida and I'm starting to like the weather a little more this time of year.
