A reacent scan of the four tumors (one in the pancreas two in the liver and one im not certain whare it is but its tiny ) that the doctors are following was bitter sweet. Only one tumor (in the liver) grew very slightly the rest stayed the same. The tumor markers in my blood are down to the 200 fron 500 on my last blood test. In my last scan tumors were down 7 percent overall and that brought us much joy. The fact that the tumors did not shrink brings the reality that my diagnosis is terminal. Please dont get me wrong im certenly not going to make it easy for the cancer to win this fight. I know the chemo im on will eventually stop working and then im ready for some exciting new trials. Can anyone explain the cancer markers to me all i know is low is good and high is bad. I was over a thousand when i started treatment in February. Is there a number that means my experation date is comming soon and its time to spend some money Extremely Foolishly. As for now with help from family and friends im taking my family to disney world for seven days starting this Saturday. Any suggestions for disny would be welcome as well its my first time.
