Great news!

CSN is getting an upgrade. All of your posts will still be here, but the website will have a new look, new features and be mobile-friendly. To prepare for the changes, the site will be down briefly at the end November. We’ll continue to provide updates as we get closer.    

NED at one year!

My doctor's office called to say my CEA was perfectly normal and see you in April for your CT scan! This is 3 weeks shy of one full year since all known cancer was removed during surgery.

My calcium was 1 point too high so they said to not take so much calcium. Also, they did not tell me I wasn't supposed to take calcium for 12 hours before the blood tests for my minerals, etc. Not only had I done that (about 9 or 10 hours prior), but I also ate a whole can of turnip greens (75% of mdr of calcium) trying to make sure my potassium wasn't low. I'm taking 1,700 mgs a day of calcium. Said to stop taking it for a week and then if I wanted to take it again, get my calcium checked and have my PCP help me decide on how much.

I thank my Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, for my healing and give HIM all honor and glory!

sorry diane I am late on my congrats....let me join all the others in wishing you well.

You and I are on exactly the same time frame...I have ct scan and cea in April and then again at the end of June. I asked yesterday about kras but they will not test here until it's time that you need it....too expensive she said. Because I seem to be ned she would not order it.....oh well not to worry.

Merry Holidays to all and special wishes to you diane

And isn't it wonderful that your "problem" is only too much calcium! :)

It is so nice when medical problems are so small and easiy remedied rather than the big challenges.

Enjoy your holidays stress-free knowing you are NED!
