I finally got the word on my M-spike today. An M-spike is a measurement of all of the bad protein being produced by the myeloma. Normal people don't have an M-spike in their blood, so you want this number to be zero. When mine was last checked in March, it was a hefty 4.9. Now it is a puny little ...
THREE! POINT! ONE!
That's right! Spike is meeeeellllllting! Meeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeellllllting! When I was first diagnosed, it was 3.2, so this is the lowest I've ever seen it.
Of course, the only good M-spike is a dead M-spike, and we want this sucker gone, or as close to gone as it can possibly get. Even at 3.1, I have a way to go. We'll get there, though.
