I don't know what the protein thing is. I only know about
the oligoclonal bands. Those bands indicate a antibody or immune response and they know whether or not that response is specific for the central nervous system ( as opposed the blood ). You may have to wait until you see the doctor. I am sure that Tuesday cannot come soon enough for you. Let us know what you find out. Good luck.
