More tests

Hi Everyone,

I am still no further forward with a diagnosis and still no PET Scan which up to now the MDT team have decided against but have opted for another CT scan. I had bloods taken yesterday for Ovarian cancer and Pancreatic and some tests that I didn't recognise on the form CEA , AFP ? Primary ? Mets, words I am all too familiar with. I have of course googles symptoms, big mistake!! Don't ever google, leave it to the professionals please as you can read a load of rubbish.

I see my Haematology consultant for the results on the 23rd of April. I can't sleep and  my appetite is suffering which is unusual for me :(
