BMT Day 59: More Entries In The Big Book Of Reid Levin Medical Mysteries
Monday July 13th 2015, 9:44 pm
Filed under: Leukemia, Who Knows?

I did not sleep well last light, and ended up sleeping all morning. I feel awful and no one really seems to know why. Except the nodes. These lymph nodes are driving me nuts. They’re already around my head and neck. All I can say is that I’ve been reassured they’re not lymphoma. Other than that, no one has a clue why I’m getting them. If I had an infection in my head, it might make sense, but I don’t appear to have anything like that. I’m on widespread antibiotics just in case, to hopefully tone down the nodes. If that doesn’t work, I’m probably going to get samples taken of them again (with needles, even).

I’m getting frustrated and angry about no one knowing what this is or what to do about it, even if they’re doing their best. I also feel guilty and getting frustrated and angry when there are much more specific BMT problems I could be having–problems I know people who have. Problems where the donor’s host cells attack the host, or the way around. If this bothers me, I hope that BMT specific problems don’t happen to me.

I’m going to try get some sleep and see if it helps.

Good night,

–Reid.

(note: I’d originally mismarked this as “Day 60.”)
