Does anyone know of a site on the web which would help me interpret the values of some of the tests done weekly on my husband, Bill. I've been keeping a chart, but other than knowing normal values, I'm unable to use this information. The nurses have informed me that the important ones are platelets, white blood count, hemoglobin, hematocrit, absolute nutrifils. However, we were aware of the attention paid to the liver function tests before a stent was placed and the cancer dx given. He has been having the light colored stools again, so I'm wondering if we should be paying attention to the liver function numbers again. Because of the protocol he is on we see the oncologist every week. He is currently on the what I believe is called the Isacoff protcol. Any help with web site or a book I might use to help me would be appreciated. Thanks, Judy
