In a way, that doesn’t make sense to me. That almost sounds like waiting until you have 3rd degree sunburn to put on sunscreen. However, as a couple of friends pointed out, that may mean that it is currently at remission type levels. Or as my friend Lorie said (in line with my analogy), it would be like putting sun block on when you aren’t planning on going outside.
The other thing Dr. Shah talked about was possibly giving me intravenous IgG (a component of the immune system) to help me deal with my recurrent fevers & infections. I’m not really sure what all that involves, but Dr. Shah was planning on calling Dr. Cole, my wonderful doctor here in
consult about that. Tulsa
My plan right now is to go over all of this with Dr. Cole when I see him this Friday. He does an amazing job of “dumbing down” all that medical jargon to help me understand it better.
That’s all I know at this point. I will update again this weekend after I talk to Dr. Cole on Friday. In the meantime, if you have any questions, don’t hesitate to get in touch.
