After Cycle #5, I still haven't achieved Very Good Partial Response (90% reduction), but my numbers are still looking solid and all of my numbers are trending in the right direction. Here they are in Non-Dorky bullet-ed form:
- M Protein was 0.8, now 0.7 [Normal Range: Zero]
- IgG was 1120, it's now 806 [Normal Range: 620-1520]
- Kappa free light was 10.6, now 8.2. [Normal Range: 0.33-1.94]
- Total Protein was 6.6, now 6.5 [Normal Range: 6.0-8.3]
Here is the data in my preferred dorky excel format for M Protein and IgG respectively:
Given the continued success based on my body's response to the chemo, it has been determined that I will move forward with a 7th round of RVDD after the current cycle I am on. The maximum number of cycles is 8, so there is an end in sight. If I end up with 8 cycles, the only issue we run into is that my transplant may coincide with the birth of Child #3. I guess the good news is the delivery room and the transplant recovery room are all connected!
