Topic: PET Scan and Blood work

Tomorrow I have a PET/CT scan and blood work. Please pray for no new cancer. I am also having blood work for a couple of  things that could be giving me chronic hives. I have had hives for 16 weeks and I am miserable.
Thanks and hugs
Lisa

You got it Lisa! And of course my fingers are crossed and a ton of positive thoughts are coming your way as well. I so hope as well that the blood tests show more about the hives so that something effective can be done to deal with them too.

Lisa,

Sending tons of good wishes!  My Mom had hives numerous times and we found an over the counter lotion that was wonderful.  It's called SARNA and we purchased it at Walgreens and Walmart and the local drugstores.

It gave my Mom lots of relief from the hives and infernal itching!  Chekc it out!

I've got my eyes, fingers and toes all crossed for a good result!

Hugs!

"A prognosis is simply an audit of how truly precious each day is.  Live each day to the maximum, celebrate what was, and what is - Don't spend your life looking forward to what will or might be." .... words of wisdom from my beloved son on hearing of his grandmother's CC prognosis.

Re: PET Scan and Blood work

Thank you for all your thoughts and prayers for my recent visit to The Cleveland Clinic. My PET Scan showed no cancer anywhere and my tumor marker CA 19-9 came back today at 14 which is in the normal range and the lowest mine has ever been. My team of medical professionals are amazing, thank you Dr. Bassam Estfan, Vicki Pinkava, Dr. John Fung and Dr. Kevin Stephans. Thank you Lord for the blessing of each and every day.

Hi Lisa,

This is GREAT news!!!  I am so happy for you!!!  Now you just have to get rid of those hives!!! Any news on that yet?

Hugs,
Mary

Re: PET Scan and Blood work

Lisa, that is such wonderful news, so happy for you!!!

On the hives, was there any progress on the autoimmune diagnosis?  I mentioned to you my Dad's situation where he was having a lot of skin reaction too after the RFA.  We saw a good dermatologist recently and he thinks its likely an autoimmune reaction.  I was also having conversations with a liver specialist here in CA, and he also thought an autoimmune response is not unusual given the tight connection between the functions of the liver and skin.  Hope you find the root of the hives and a comfortable remedy soon!
