Topic: CA 19-9
Mom wasnt feeling too well 11 days after her first treatment. I took her to the urgent care at Fox Chase and the doc was concerned about her billirubin rising and talked about putting in an external stent. Her tests came back and her billirubin dropped from 3.5 to 2.1! We were thrilled. Her eyes are getting whiter and so is her skin. I really hope the next few rounds will shrink this $#%#& tumor and she can have it removed.
Her labs came back fine except her CA 19-9 jumped from 171 to 2210! Any idea what that means?
