      I remember when I met Dr Grossman he asked how did I find him, I stated Linda from Kentucky, he laughed since my oncologist wrote to check SC and FL for Ipi. I just finished the fourth treatment on Monday. There are sn many factors that can influence LDH. Mine has gone down from 350 to 135 in the past couple of weeks. I am on the Ibuprofen regimine and it does concern me.Try taking some B-12 low levels can raise LDH levels. It just seems like there are no definate rules or timeline on who is going to be a responder or not. I just figure after the first scan I will still not have an answer.
