I want to make sure I’m understanding this right— the reason for the spinal tap is to check the protein levels rght? And the level if higher than 45 or more means theres more problems going on? The blood wok is to check t-cells,whiteblood count etc. ??? Wanting to know before we go on the 27 March so we know what to look for ourselves. You mentioned that this test should only take about 30-45 min and results should be in within 24hrs? If the dr finds something wrong do you think we’ll be notified before our appt in May? Sorry if I sound crazy or dumb but being new to all this I want to know all I can so I’m sure Monica is getting all the right treatments.
