CMP Again

Hi everyone. I went to the dr again last Friday for them to do yet another CMP to check my liver enzymes. After three tests of elevated results, I was getting a little scared. This one came back NORMAL! I was so relieved. Evidently it was the synthroid that caused to elevated results. Now I go back in July to get the CEA levels and CMP done again. Wow, it is really like feeding a vampire isnt it? Thanks and I hope people will keep us informed on Judy.

Definitely!!! I was so happy! I am trying to help myself with these feelings of panic before the test and then the euphoria with the word "normal" or the fear when something is "elevated". I know I am new to this just being 6 months into recovery but I dont think that the roller coaster of emotions will get much better as time passes. All of you guys have been such a blessing to me and I thank all of you for your help. It was amazing to me that until I told my PCP that maybe (?) the synthroid was the cause of the liver elevation, he didnt mention it! Thanks to jgibson for letting me know that is a side effect and telling me the website to go too! But anyway, I am thankful and happy at least until July 11!

Hi Franny, Great news, so enjoy the relief!! It is amazing how much of an advocate and detective you need to be in health care these days. I'm a nurse, and prob somewhat a pain in the keister to my onc, but it's my life, sooo.
I'm now being treated for a vitamin K deficiency that no one knew I had til I developed a blood clot and they started me on a little coumadin and my values shot through the roof. Keep on staying on top of these issues. Regards, Judy
