I just got my results back from my dr appointment in Germany. Of course my CSF PCR was Neg for lyme, Elisa neg, and only IGG 41 on WB (through QUEST) Negative for viruses, parasites, and coinfections (through Quest I believe).

However my immune diagnostic testing was all out of whack! My ID dr still wants me to do the month of IV Rocephin AND see an Immunologist. He said if they remain abnormal I'm a candidate for bone marrow biopsy [Frown]

I'm going to attach the Immune Diagnostic results and hopefully someone can shed some light on this for me. I'm a bit worried about cancer.

Thanks!

Here are the results...

I would go with the IV and see what happens.

I'm going to do the IV but am also worried about all the messed up immune testing.

Does anyone else familiar with what these abnormal labs indicate or mean?

Thanks.

I believe the borrelia can reduce the NK cells like the articles say. Whether this leaves us more open

for cancers by not having cells functioning properly is possible I would say yes. Just like

anything else that alters our system for very long. You let a ulcer go too long and it too can develop a cancer.

Do I think it is possible that some patients diagnosed with cancers have undetected Lyme. OF COURSE.

I would do the treatment and the consult who may want to do further testing.

Heck fire- they have lied to us so long I would not be suprised if half of all cancers were not

associated with infectious disease.
