Great news, must be that good clean Newfoundland air and water helping!
My dad has had a 'clean' CT scan too recently, his doc doesn't believe in
doing CA19-9s for BDC so CT is the only thing we have to go on.
Unfortunately, dad has suffered a bit from the medical system, he is on blood
thinners for a prior clot and--his blood got too thin and they told him to
stop his blood thinner for too long, then he developed a second blood clot
and swelling and pain secondary to the blood clot and on and on...... I think
we are all reconciled to the fact that the cancer will probably end his life
( he is nearly 78) but it really makes me mad to think a preventable
complication of the therapy for the cancer may be the final straw! Anyway,
my little rant, best wishes to you and your hubby for long and happy lives!
