Oncology appointment

Today was my regular oncologist appointment. My CA 15-3 tumour marker has gone up to 40. It was oscillating between about 29 and 35 for about the last year or so, and this is the first time that it's gone over 38, or the top of the normal range, for almost two years.

My oncologist said that she isn't worried, so I'm not worried. My last CT scan of my chest, abdomen, and pelvis was almost a year ago so I'm just about due to be scanned now anyways. The CT scan is scheduled for next Wednesday and I'll get the results on April 9. Stay tuned for that.

Next Wednesday is going to be busy because I get the biopsy results from my elbow thingy that afternoon. Everyone who's looked at it so far has said that it doesn't look like cancer at all - which I don't think it is - but they have no idea what it could be. I hope the biopsy results are conclusive because I'm really curious to find out what that thingy is.
