Had lab and saw the doctor today. My last marker was 505 and today it was 554. So that is less than a 10 percent rise. Of course normal is less than 35, so it is still high, but not as high as the 3200 when I started chemo last time.
I asked about follow up and he said I did not need to come back for 3 months. I will not need another CAT scan until the marker rises significantly at a time, or if I have symptoms. So that was great news today. I continue to feel good, so I will continue as I have been with my current medicines (aromasin, biocucurmin, and enoxaparin).
We will be headed back to Illinois sometime in April. We have not picked a date yet. I appreciate all the prayers. Now I am hoping to make it through the summer without chemo. I have had 10 months since the last chemo, and I appreciate each day I have.
Hope all is well with everyone.
