Topic: CA 19-9

My 1 1/2 yr post resection scan was in October and it was clean.  My next scan is not until April.  My oncologist ordered me blood work at the half way point between scans.  My Ca 19-9 was only 17!!  That is the lowest it has ever been.
I know the ca 19-9 isn't definitive, but I'll take the low result.  3 months ago it was 27.
God is good.  And it is my 7 yr anniversary today!!  What a great gift!

Take care!

Susie

Excellent news!  Where did you have your re-section done?  Continue getting those good scans!

UPMC but I get my follow up treatment at OHSU because I live in Oregon.

Re: CA 19-9

First of all, Happy Anniversary!!! I wish you many, many more. It is also great that your numbers are so low. I don't care if they are definitive or not, a low number is normal and that is what we all want to be!!! All the best to you and your hubby.
