Topic: Teddy's CA-19 Climbing
We went to the ONC today for Teddy's LAB results and since Nov 6th the CA19 has climbed from 186 to 233. The ONC asked if we were getting the PET Scan and I told him the story about the denial and he said, "Would you mind if I called Dr. Kresl (Radman), and helped him push this along?". I said of course not, help yourself! He is something else. He said we WILL get it and he too would like it sooner than later. The funi thing is his B.R. is .06, perfect. But I guess that just shows it is not in his bile ducts. All other labs were excellent.
Our daughter is upset as she feels all this scanning feeds the cancer as that is what her friends naturopathic doctor says. Our ONC says it does not. Any thoughts on this?
