  • LDH has doubled during BEP

    Hi everyone

    I got stage 2b Non-seminoma. I had my left nut removed and the doc recommended 3*BEP & 1 EP. i finished the first 3 BEP cycles and my markers are in normal range except for the LDH L. It was almost 200 a week ago and now it hits 400 prior the final cycle. AFP is 1.9 , HCG UNDETECTED.

    What possibly caused this sudden increase? My onc said it could have been caused by a heavy excercise but then I haven’t been working out at all since this started. Any thoughts?

    I just finished EPx2 and mid way through I was measured at 243 (range 140-271). Before that

      I just finished EPx2 and mid way through I was measured at 243 (range 140-271). Before that it was 118 and a few weeks before that I was 126. I was just recently concerned for an AFP double from basically two to four but still in normal range of less than 6.

      I believe during chemo LDH is a measurement of your “muscles working hard” and even though you may not be at the Gym, your body is running a chemo marathon. After EPx2 my leg muscles are like jello. I workout often and I can feel it.

      If your onc isn’t concerned you shouldn’t be either. Especially LDH. I know it’s important but I don’t think it’s that important with normal AFP and HCG.
