Terrified of recurring cancer

Hello everyone,  my name is Kathy and 2yrs ago I had Gallbladder Cancer stage 2b with mets to my liver of 0:6 mm. I had a liver resection followed up with 6mths Capcitabine.  I had my bloodwork results yesterday and my cancer markers are elevated, this absolutely floored me as I been eating heaps of good antioxidants  like Tumeric Root raw Garlic Blueberries.......I really thought this would help keep it away. Im having a scan today but have to wait till next Tuesday for results. I  was feeling great now I feel sick worrying.  I'm wondering can your cancer markers go up for no reason ? And has this happened to anyone ? I'm so very scared. God Bless You All ....cheers

Hi Kathy,

I'm sorry to hear about your cancer.

I don't have any answers to your questions, but I just wanted to let you know that I'm thinking about you.

How did you go?
