I don't mean to spam the boards today, but I just got a call from my oncologist's office; apparently the PCR results finally made their way up to his office.  I personally haven't seen my PCR at diagnosis but the results for this are 0.003%!  I'm pretty ecstatic about that; he wants me to go in and have a biopsy this week so we can look at the marrow, I guess since FISH is negative and PCR is so low so quickly.

Dang, now how am I going to be able to finish the work day with the good news?

Congrats!  I am headed for my 9 month bmbx in a few days and I can only hope my results are as good as yours.

Congratulations Taylor, those are brilliant numbers.

The only question now is, is it actually worth doing a BMB with numbers that low?  Personally I'd probably still have one as my tolerance for pain is better than my tolerance for fretting about crazy 'what-ifs', but if your initial BMB didn't show any funnies (apart from the standard 9:22) then you may feel differently.

Hope you managed to get through your day without having to have your grin surgically removed and that you are not too hung over today.
