Topic: I am 28
I know that tumors markers, for some, are not a good indication of cancer but for me, when my number has been elevated I have had new tumors. In June, my CA 19-9 went to 14, this was the first time in over three years that I was in the normal range. In September my number jumped to 42 and then 44 in October. I also had a PET scan at this time which was clear except for a very small spot that lit up in the liver. The radiology report stated that it could be scar tissue or possible the beginning of a recurrence. The plan was to follow up with blood work in seven weeks. My blood work this week was all good and my CA 19-9 went down to 28 and my CEA went to 1.1. My husband has been praying that my number would be 28, I told him he was crazy for the last seven weeks. You can imagine how blessed we felt when we heard the number 28.
Thank you for your continued support and prayers
