Progress Report

In July I had my usual course of 6-month follow-up tests and exams. I’m very happy to report that the MRI of my abdomen and pelvis showed that all disease is stable. There are no new tumors or spread of tumors. What’s more, a couple of my significant blood and urine tests were at their lowest levels ever. My Chromagranin-A result was 4.4, and my 5-HIAA result was 20.4. Both of these markers are used to help monitor the effectiveness of treatment and detect recurrence of tumors. All of this would indicate that the PRRT I started two years ago is still having a profound and positive effect on my tumors. Great news!
