Terminology and Acronyms

Being new here, I'm still trying to learn the terminology used.  Such as NED?  From context, I've obviously been able to deduce that it's a clear report, but what does the acronym stand for?  Any other terms I will need?

Thanks, Debbie

NED- No Evidence of Disease

NBD- No Big Deal

ICE- short for Iceman and Icemantoo 

Icewoman- My wife

There are a lot more which the others will chime in on.

Happy Ned Year- Happy New Year

Hey Ice!  I want to say a big thank you for always being responsive and so helpful.  Itreally feels good to know someone is there that cares enough to read every thing and give a shout back!

Another term you might here is NVED....no visiable evidence of disease.  There are a number of ways that the same results are expressed in reality.  For example, I recently got a "no strong evidence of metastiisis" on a report.  Now thats hedging ones bets!  In any case they use a number of ways of expressing things so that they are not responsible if they are mistaken.  Best bet is to believe in your self and feel confident that no matter what life throws at you, you will prevail.  Here we all support each other in the effort to overcome.

That can be the alphabet soup of confusion.  Use a search engine for something like "reading CBC labs"  (Complete Blood Count)

Or similar for "CMP" (Complete Metabolic Panel)  You will come up with a number of sites, but find one that explains the tests you have had.  Don't be mis-led by the ones that are selling medications or cures for every thing in the book-block the pop-ups.

Print out a copy and keep it in the folder with your copies of labs, as you will probably want to refer to it again.

Good luck, but sorry you needed to join this select group.
