God has blessed me again with good results and wonderful doctors, Dr.John Fung, Dr. Bassam Estfan, Dr. Kevin Stephan's and Vicki Pinkava .

Re: Good News

I still have hives for those of you who asked! They are horrible, covering about 70% of my body. They are itchy and hurt. The allergist has run many tests and all have come back normal, still waiting on autoimmune panel. Taking more pills than I ever have to try and control the itching and redness.

Re: Good News

Lisa, happy about your blood work and cancer markers but still really puzzled that your hives haven't resolved! Could it be from the radiation or from the dye they put in your system? Seems whatever it is causing them, you're still getti v exposed to somehow!
I used to react like that to solvents and bleach fumes. I'm pulling for you and dont mind if i call you names like a "raging itch"!! My husband used to call me his " little itch" because I LOVE having my back scratched. Now I bribe the kids to scratch it!

Re: Good News

Lisa! Happy about the ca 19-9 and sorrya bout the hives. I have read that radiation can give hives. I hope they go away, you poor darlin'    Meanwhile, concentrate on that wonderful tumor marker news!!!

Re: Good News

Thanks everyone...I'm a real itch these days...just ask my family...hehe
