LDH was elevated

LDH was elevated

Hi all, I have been in remission for 14 months from Stage 4 Non Hodgkin’s DLBC. Went for my 3 month check up and my LDH was 266, 90-234 being the range. I’ve had a cold for a week and a half and have been taking a lot of aspirin and ibuprophen, also I had a few vodka, club sodas the night before, which I normally don’t do. No other symptoms. Dr thinks it’s all the above, still nervous though

My spouse was diagnosed with stage IV Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma in July 2019.

He refused chemotherapy and refuses to talk about his situation. He does nothing but sit and watch tv. Are there any suggestions about how to be supportive of his choices?
