      Thank you for your support! I’m in the process of discussing this with my Onco doc

      I believe your test results of 4.1 falls within the normal range. Anything over 4.9 would be on the high side. Are you sure 4.9 is the high normal? I realize different labs can have different normal values but check out the range just to be sure.

      Goldquest: the range is from 0.0 to 4.9.

    Well, well, well. Cancer. The gift that keeps on giving.

    Something pops up every 3 years; weird. ACL surgery in 2010, cancer treatment in 2013, heart attack in 2016, and now in 2019 lung scarring (IPS - idiopathic pulmonary thrombosis - from all the radiation/chemo, pneumonia, bronchitis, and asthma over the past 50 years).

      I feel your pain, Every time I feel a pain or hear something crack in my body I just wait for the other shoe to drop, right in my rear and give me the "next thing" that I have to deal with. But, what else can we do but press on? I hope you're doing well otherwise.

      Also, Thanks for taking the time to answer questions and offer support to others! It makes a big difference to those who have questions and need information for someone to offer that. A new diagnosis is a scared and lonely place, we can help them by just answering a few questions and offering a shoulder to lean on.

      Thank you again, we hope you're doing well.

      The super-duper lung test said it's mild and no meds are needed. What a relief!
