First, the good news. On Monday my liver enzymes had fallen to the acceptable range and I went back on LDK378 at 400mg. As long as I am on this particular therapy, I will stay away from alcohol, levaquin and NSAID’s (advil had been my anti inflammatory of choice). I have been eating lots of liver loving foods (beets, beets and more beets) as well as a daily dose of prunes and bran: my friend Mateo suggested All Bran Buds, which I am happy to say are highly effective.
For the time being, ice cream has been added to my diet, and I have already gained back four of the pounds I lost. Happily, my wheezing is much improved and my energy is back in spades.
Perhaps best of all, my spirits have risen accordingly; I am back in fighting mode.
