It's been a year since I was diagnosed. I read this forum almost every day, but hardly posted anything. I do appreciate the wealth of information and emotional support this group provides. Thank you!
I just got my BMB and PCR results back for my one-year check up. One thing I don't quite know how to comprehend is that my Onc did PCR on both my blood and my bone marrow sample. Blood: 0.01% IS, bone marrow: 0.1% IS. I don't know how to interpret this 1 log difference between the results done by the same lab on samples drawn on the same day.
I'm slightly disappointed at the results given my blood PCR were negative 3 months and 6 months ago. I understand PCR is not really as precise as the decimal points suggest. I told myself not to get too attached to the previous 2 undetectables. And I know being in MMR within a year is a good place to be. However, being an over achiever, I don't like the bone marrow PCR being right at the MMR mark.
I'm meeting my Onc soon to discuss the results. I'm hoping you guys can give me some insight on this.
