Great news! I received the letter from my endocrinologist with the results of my last tumor marker blood test... and my results are in the toilet! He had once said he'd like that lab to be under five, and my result was 4.1. Tada.
It's never felt so good to be in the toilet.
Meanwhile, while my tumor marker is circling the drain, my doctor also increased my Synthroid dose. We'll draw lab work again at the end of December for my regular office visit. We'd like the result to be a big fat zero the next time.
This doesn't mean my war with the c-bomb is over, but this particular battle that's been going on for about the last year is almost behind us. It's never felt so good to feel this bad.
