Just reached 6 months from end of treatment for stomach cancer. Cat scan is clear!! Only problem is that my liver function numbers (especially alkaline phosphatase) are too high. Doctor is not too concerned but will continue to monitor it. Has anyone else had elevated numbers after treatment? It's been a full year since I started this journey and I'm now feeling great and life is getting back to normal. For those who are just starting this journey --there is always hope! Even if statistics are scarry, there are always great success stories out there. Stay positive.

Congratulations! Yes, my liver function numbers were high also. They stayed high for about 6-7 months after my last chemo treatment, which was in January. Like yours, my oncologist wasn't too concerned either. Good luck to you.
