thanks everyone

Nothing new today, just called and the specialist will not be in until tomorrow

Kelso had a good weekend

Jean- the cell studies were done off of labs from when he was very ill with the infection, so I do wonder about false positives. The vet is supposed to be asking the oncologist about this as well. My husband and I decided that we would see what she said, but would ultimately probably want the test ran again if they are telling us it is cancer

It was not a blood culture, it was "flow cytometry" and stains of the cells from what I understand?

appreciate everyone for their wonderful comments and support!

Glad to hear you had a good weekend!! I would definitely question the diagnosis especially if the test was done at the height of infection. That sure seems like it could create a false positive if there ever was one and I whole heartedly agree with running the test again if they try to push the cancer diagnosis! Hoping for good news tomorrow! hugging

yeah, yesterday...

The internist talked to two oncologist's, both say they use the test he had done with a bone marrow biopsy to diagnose cancer, but do not usually use it alone as it does have false positives and false negatives.

So she is recommending a bone marrow biopsy

Kelso is doing pretty well though, seems more active so that is good

Do they think the bone marrow biopsy needs to be done right now? Since Kelso seems more active and is doing pretty well, would it hurt to wait a month or two and repeat the bloodwork rather than putting him through a bone marrow biopsy right away? Obviously I know you want a diagnosis and time to weigh the options if it is lymphoma or leukemia, but since he's doing better, I would be inclined to wait a little while for things to settle down a bit more and repeat the bloodwork and cytology before going ahead with a bone biopsy - but that's just me.

Fingers and paws crossed and good thoughts going out to you & Kelso! hugging
