Topic: Had a great meeting/scans/etc with my docs Monday and got good news!
It was a nerve racking day before and day of until we met with my chemo oncologist. We were still recovering from all the time zone changes and jet lag from our fantastic Alaskan cruise. I'll tell you more about that in another post or you'll see it via FaceBook.
Anyway, so I get through the CT and get to my oncologist and as many of you recall he's like most oncs. He wants to be truthful but doesn't want to fall into optimism. Well, he pointed out my CA19-9 is down for 2 or 3 consecutive reads. From 981 (highest so far) to 551! Yay! He also feels more cautiously optimistic about the possibility of beating this down and possibly looking at talking about surgically removing my omentum!
I did leave with a 2 shots a day regimen for a blood clot next to my liver but I guess they see it occasional with liver tx patients. Either way, I'm happy as heck with the results.
With love and light,
