They want me to come back in a week for another beta (not a big shock there) !! Apparently my beta didn't go up enough ?? I was under the impression my levels should consistently drop and if they don't that means the mtx did not dissolve everything. For 2wks my beta has gone up...even if they go down next week we still run the risk of them going up again at some point...how long do we keep doing this ???
They wanted to run a test called a heterophile antibody test but after reading up on it I'm not having it done...if that was causing my elevated hcg my urine hpts would be negative which isn't the case (the antibodies do not register + on urine tests). They are grasping at straws .
I talked with the nurse and she's going to have the dr call me since she couldn't answer any of my questions.
So now I wait on the call from the dr...maybe he can offer some clarity.
