repeat blood test

I went for follow up the week after I came back from Korea. My blood sample also taken for repeat PCR test (to be sent to Singapore) and I hope the result that will come in next couple of week will show some reduction in the residual disease. Otherwise, there would be some change of plan, I guessed.
The doctor was happy when I told him that my appetite is getting better and my mouth is not as 'tight' as before after I was restarted on steroid. Hmm...talking about steroid, means that I will be bloated again, bug by the gastric uneasiness and labile mood. Anyaway, it is good that it can control the GVHD effect from overwhelming and do more harm to my body. I will be on monthly Immunoglobulin infusion for the next few months to boost my body immune.
My face is still full of acne like lesions from the GVHD effect but its okay. Oh yes, my weight haven't gone up yet. May be I should eat more and get back my 5 kilos, as been advised by the hematologist.
