The evil proteins (IGG Lambda Light Chains), which is an indirect measurement of my cancer, came back at 58 mg/L. Normal is below 26. When I was diagnosed it was over 2600 mg/L and that is what killed my kidneys. So this is good news that the protein is, for the first time, within sight of being normal. That won’t help me feel any better (physically) but will reduce the risk of further kidney damage.
