Hi all, I was wondering if anyone could help me understand how they measure the liver and what it means.
My 45 year old daughter was diagnosed with Bowel cancer with spots on the liver 4 weeks ago, since then she has had induced chemo...chemo tablets for two weeks then rested her body for a week. Today she began her 2nd induced chemo, I have since been told she had an allergy reaction with swelling on her tongue, feet and hands. My 15 year old grand-daughter also tells me the good news from her mothers blood test results shows her mothers liver was 200 where it use to be 600.
Can anyone explain to me what this means? Thankyou in advance.
Hi, my husband has the same condition. The only thing they "measure" with his bloods are whats called cea's. These are tumour markers that will decrease if the treatment is having an impact - a drop is good.
Cancer Council NSW would like to acknowledge the traditional custodians of the land on which we live and work.We would also like to pay respect to elders past and present and extend that respect to all other Aboriginal people.
