      Believe it or not, it could be caused by something you ate. But that's not high as the normal level is 44 to 147 IU/L. These can raise your levels plain nonfat yogurt, skim milk, mozzarella, eggs, beef, chicken, halibut, salmon, turkey, whole-wheat bread, nuts, lentils and carbonated cola drinks. If your doctor isn't concerned, then you shouldn't be. Also if you're still in treatment, levels can go up and down.

      Mom2Twins, as you can see everyone has a different answer, and the only one who knows your medical history and why he ordered a bone scan is your doctor! When you don't understand what's happening, feel free to ask them--communicating is part of his job!

      By the way, CA 27-29 is not considered very important these days.

      Sending positive thoughts your way. I was worried last month when my ALP went to 150, my Onc. told me not to worry until it became 3 times higher than my
      Pre-surgery numbers, as food can give a high number. I know we all hope our Doctors give us the correct info. Keep us posted

    I just finished my treatments for Stage II, triple negative breast cancer. I too was 40 when diagnosed. Keep positive & never quit fighting - you're stronger than you know!

      Thank you! This has been a long and difficult road. I was actually diagnosed in November with MDS- a form of blood cancer. During a full body PETT scan they found a suspicious lump in my breast. On January 31st just after finishing my 2nd round of chemo for blood cancer they told me I had stage 2 breast cancer. Because of my MDS the only option was to have a mastectomy and radiation. It all happen in 2 weeks. Really no time to process anything. Radiation is done, the effects are not, but this Wednesday I will be checking into the hospital, a month behind our regular schedule, to have a stem cell transplant. I am physically and emotionally drained. I struggle everyday that I had a mastectomy. I just can't believe it.
