I was talking to a friend about fibrils the other night, because hey, who doesn't love a good fibril conversation? I was trying to explain why I'm still sometimes uneasy about my fibrillary GN diagnosis, and of course I struggled to verbally make sense of things.
That's when I turned to my good friend Google and found this image:
Amyloid fibrils are typically 9-12 nm.
My fibrils are 9-10 nm.
This means nothing, of course. I don't think Mayo and UM are wrong. My sample didn't stain congo red.
I just think it's one piece of information that is unique to me and -- in the words of C + C Music Factory -- is a thing that makes me go hmmmm.
