Jim has had 3 periods of response when his numbers were at or below a normal level. During these periods, he made regular visits to his oncologist for bloodwork to check his numbers. While Jim was feeling better, he was able to enjoy time with his family, going for short walks and listening to music with his wife. Jim has also found this time difficult because of the uncertainty of not knowing when relapse was going to happen.
Jim uses his periods of response to connect with his family. While they can be stressful, periods of response can also give you the opportunity to focus on your wellness and mental health.
