Getting better

Good news!  My medical conditions have been improving.  Here are the results of my tests last Thursday and the check up with my doctor yesterday.


The ultrasound showed that the complex mass in my liver has been decreasing.  From 266 cc before I was discharged to 166 cc a week after my discharge to 105 cc another week after and, now, to 29 cc after another 2 weeks.

With this development, my doctor has already stopped prescribing antibiotics.

I'm still sweet:

The FBS test revealed that my sugar level has also reduced.  It's now 7.26 mmol/L (132 mg/dL) from 10.62 mmol/L (193 mg/dL) two weeks ago, albeit still over the normal range of 3.90 - 6.30 mmol/L (70 - 115 mg/dL).

My doctor maintained my medicines but advise me to be on diet.

Extra protection:

I also had a shot of Flu Vaccine.  The last time I had it was in 2009.

My next tests and consultation are scheduled a month after.  My fingers are still crossed.

Oh!  I forgot to ask my doctor If I could now drink!

  2. Of course you can! ... with lots and lots of water! no problemos!
