Our Multiple Myeloma fact of the day
Depending on your condition they put you in different stages ( 1,2,3) and treat you differently
The one that got me was.......
Stage 1 - over 600 million plasma cells
Stage 2 - 600-1,200 million plasma cells
Stage 3 - over 1,200 million plasma cells
No real information here.....except those are really big numbers.
No wonder sh.t goes wrong with the human body. Seems more complex than required. ....ok. It is supposed to be a sefl-repairing system. Still.
Billions of independent cells all humping/splitting and rubbing up as against each other. No wonder some weird mutant cells get produced. Amazing it doesn't happen more. ..... although it probably does happen a lot. Just most the mutants are like your lazy cousin/friend, who would have to actually get off the couch to cause a problem. Lazy and unproductive saves us again.
Monday I go to Cancer clinic and learn the "what treatment and when".....and yes I will be wearing the "I'm Not Dead Yet" T-shirt. I have always believed it is better to offend and apologize, than to never risk offending.
