One of the good things that has happened recently is a number of Apps and ways to access your GP and NHS data have been introduced so you do not need to wait for the doctor to access information like blood test results.
And so I used one of my new Apps to look at my blood test results from the test I had last week and was very pleased to see that my PSA had dropped to 88, I have made it back into double figures 😁👍.
It’s actually quite a big drop, down from 144 last month and clearly a massive drop from 1,585 where it was last year.
On the downside the blood test also showed that I am borderline Anaemic which means a lack of Iron in my blood and other things which I still need to find out about.
While I wait to find out if either the GP or my Oncologist will prescribe Iron tablets and of course identify the underlying cause of the Iron deficiency, I can add more Iron rich food into my diet such as the following.
- dried fruit – such as dried apricots
- wholegrains – such as brown rice
- fortified breakfast cereals
- soy bean flour
- most dark-green leafy vegetables – such as watercress and curly kale
So I will be looking at some liver recipes, I have not had liver for years! Liver and Bacon sounds good.
And I’ll be getting the blender out and making those lovely green drinks with curly kale and spinach!
But such good news about my PSA, I feel it sets me up for my Outpatients call tomorrow and Lutetium treatment number 6 on Friday.
