Topic: 2 years cancer-free. False positive CA-19-9

Thanks Marian for having told me last week that it was too soon to tell. My CATScan today showed nothing and while the doctor didn't have any answers as to why the CA19-9 marker was high
Giving a false positive , he just said it sometimes happens. The scan was clear. I feel truly blessed. I also feel in awe of so many people on this site whose spirits are truly inspirational. I can never thank people enough for their postings about their journeys which provide strength during a very uncertain and frightening time. I feel blessed to have this site AND my doctor who is the best.
