Just had a scan on the 26th, the good news is I'm still NED. I had blood work also, not so good news. elevated Alkaline Phosphatase, potassium,and glucose. My ct-scan also showed that my liver is mildly fatty. My Onc. recommend I see My PCP for the possible causes. Needless to say I did some research and read could possibly indicate liver disease. I am seeing my PCP today and am just a wreck. I also read that having certain chemo drugs can also cause damage to various organs, I haven't had chemo for 3 yrs. but last blood test, which was 6 months ago everything was within normal range. Have any of you experienced any of these since your post treatments? Any info at all would help ease my mind.

Hello, Great news on your clear scan. I was shown to have a fatty liver also, my oncologist was'nt worried about it. I believe it is common, and your diet may have a lot to do with it. I am sure your pcp will go over all that with you, and please let us know what your pcp says. I wish you well. Lori
