It looks like drop factor of roughly 2.4. On that basis, about three weeks or so you should be pretty much clear?

What is the normal level? Zero?
If I show up at your door, chances are you did something to bring me there.

I asked them that this morning. Apparently anthing under six is normal. You could have a baseline of two or three, for example, but be completely and perfectly healthy. Different people have different baselines. Some patients have a baseline of ten or whatever but this is known to the doctors and as long as it doesn't change dramatically, then they won't be too concerned.

Aye, hopefully. It was likened today like losing weight though: the big numbers come off quite quickly but the loss can slow down after that. I think as long as they keep coming down, then the drop factor becomes less significant the closer you come to normal level.

No, that was the douchebag frat guy's nickname for hobbits.

Thank-you. :) Getting there. Hopefully within the next few weeks I can resign this to the 'unpleasant memory' bin.

Not the "always in the back of my mind nagging at me like a shrew of a wife"?
