EastCoastLadi Posted October 13, 2006 Share Posted October 13, 2006 Hello, I'm asking because a couple of weeks ago my husbands' radiologist decided to add some markers to his weekly blood work. The thing is that my husband was on oral etoposide for about 18 days and stopped temorarily because of his IMRT and rad to lung and liver, also onc. and rad. are debating about giving him temodar. Well, there there has been a sharp decrease in the marker that follows the amount of cancer cells ( at least that is what I believe), my husband count on this marker started at 107 and last time it was 4 ( normal range is 3 - 9) so something is happening. I guess my questions are, has anyone else dealt with tumor experienced. We're off to see his onc. this morning to talk more ( even through he isn't all that big on markers, but he is pleased with the numbers). What does this mean? Also my husband is continuing w/ the rad today and ongoing, and will have an MRI of his brain tomorrow, and I'm betting the onc. will schedule a Chest CT scan too as well. I really appreciate any and all info you may all have... Thank you, Grace Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
