Clean bloods and scans

Postby AussieAssCancer » Mon Feb 19, 2018 2:28 am

Gday crew,

Saw my onc this morning to get the results from last weeks CT scan and blood tests.

Scans clean and bloods good. CEA was 2 which is what it’s been every 3mths since my initial surgery.

Doc was stoked and put me on 6 monthly checkups and annual scans.

Now - just need to get a clean bill of health from my colonoscopy on Thursday :|
