Update post CT scan

Hi everyone, I hope you're all doing ok. Wanted to let you know that my CT scan came back clear on this occasion. I know it's just one scan in a five year period but it's the first one and I was nervous. Everyone here has been so supportive during the past six months and I know will continue to be so, so I wanted to say a huge thank you! My liver results from my blood test are (in the onc's words) 'deranged' so they're going to check them again in three months to see if they've improved. We're all hoping it's an after effect of the Capox, but if they're still high I will be referred to a liver specialist to check further. Sending love! :x:

That is great news @Bob74. My CT was also clear in February, after I finished my chemo. It is such a relieve :x::x:


Fabulous news @Bobs74!

Terrific news @Bobs74 - so pleased for you πŸ‘πŸ»πŸ‘πŸ»πŸ‘πŸ», take very good care, Kim :x::x::x:


Just good positive news and always welcome.
I have a CT scan in a couple of weeks, but just take it as part of my treatment procedure. Had a blood test last week and no information back so to me that's positive and I anticipate the same with the CT scan.
Anything different will be dealt with accordingly but this thing I had is not allowed back nor going to win.
Stay positive, a good start already.


Hi there @Bobs74,
Great news and so happy for you! Obviously the β€˜deranged’ liver results are not so brilliant but sending all positive vibes that this is sorted for you asap. Fab!
Best wishes Helen :x::x::x::x:
