Good Afternoon Girls!

My onc/gyn just called me with the results of several blood work tests. All was fairly normal (have not had CA125 yet, next month) except she said my ionized calcium is elevated and wanted to know if my bones ache.

Well, yes! They have ached ever since chemo. She had ordered me a bone scan last November and it was negative. Anyways, I will be repeating the calcium test in 4 weeks.

Anyone else experience this? I have googled "elevated ionized calcium" and of course there are things on there you really don't want to read but do and then scare yourself!!

I just think how chemo has killed the cancer cells and how it has also destroyed so much of my good cells. It would have to show up in many ways - aches, pains, chemo brain, etc.

And then too, I need to remember this morning I went to Bible Study - Beth Moore's Living Beyond Yourself - and the lesson was on PEACE. The treasure verse for today, "The mind of sinful man is death, but the mind controlled by the Spirit is life and peace" Rom. 8:6.

Anyways, have any of you had an elevated ionized calcium result??

In His Grip,
Libby ♥
