A tad frustrated

Hey, I didn't post on Friday that I had blood drawn, because I figured I'd post today with wonderful CEA results. Well, I could if I KNEW the results! I called at lunch time today and had to leave a message. Even though I left my cell phone number, they didn't call back. I am assuming that since my oncologist didn't call me personally, everything is okay. He's the sort who will call if he feels it necessary.

Hoping for good news tomorrow!

I got my good CEA news today (went down from 88 to 73; it's headed in the right direction, anyway), so now it's your turn for good news! Your good news, of course, will be that it's still within the normal range & I'm sure that it will be. My CEA normally comes back the next day, but I had to wait from Thursday to Monday this time. Hopefully your lab was just a day delayed like mine was (or your dr. was just too busy to call you back) and you'll have your good news tomorrow morning!

If my CEA is done; they usually have the results the same day. CT scans....that's another story!

I'm good! I got through to the nurse today, and my CEA stayed the same as always.

Thanks for all the good thoughts.
