Obviously nothing is certain but this is really good news...and an exciting development for not only myself but other patients that are MSS!

PS rp1954...I am not sure what my other number mean.
MCV: 95.7 H 95.9 H 96.9 H
LDH: 5/3/18: 182. 5/25/18: 172 6/21/18: 189
The first test level is usually one of the most important ones. For 7-10% of CRC patients, serum CA199 is totally useless after the first value. For everybody else, it has potential uses.My CEA has been such a great marker...showing cancer many months before we could ever find something on even a PET scan.
They do not test my CA199
