We got the results from the Freelite test today. The lambda number went from 49 to 62 mg/L. The kappa also increased from 1.7 to 6.2 mg/L from 2/24 to 3/24. The kappa is from the production of her good immunoglobulins. Since her white blood count and neutrophils went up you would expect the kappa and lambda related to the good immunoglobulin’s to go up. That indicates some of the lambda increase is not all due to the myeloma cells.
The chemo Melphalan is shipped to us in a cooler. It arrived yesterday. Her last cycle was on 1/14 and it knocked her good blood counts down a fair amount. Since the lambda number didn’t go up very much she might decide to wait a month and see what the lambda count is then.
