Doug's Cancer CT/NM scans & PSA/Test level results- It's Good news No Great news! And still NSR 35 days post ablation

Well welcome to reality Doug, it just may have set in tonight 36 hours home from Indianapolis.

My results are in; Cancer Scan results and my PSA drop are summarized below. 

  1. CT scan Abdomen/Pelvis: NO evidence of ‘new’ or ‘progressing’ metastatic disease in Abs/Pelvis
  2. CT scan Chest: NO thoracic ‘adenopathy’ ie: disease of gland tissue Lymph Nodes.NO pulmonary nodules ie: NO small masses of rounded or irregular shape.
  3. NM Skeletal whole body scan: NO evidence of skeletal metastatic disease.
  4. Blood lab results: PSA (Prostate specific antigen) 06/08 were 0.75ng/mL vs 1.032ng/mL 03/10. My Testosterone- level is still < 5.0ng/dL In a Cancer patient me, Low #’s are good lower #’s are great. You do the math.

Consensus: My med oncologist told me twice, that I now have no traceable evidence of metastatic Cancer progression, none.Your cancer med's all three are working well.   Five No's. I'll take it.  Praise GOD for wonderful results.

    Had my EP 35 day follow up post Ablation appointment Wednesday. I'm in Strong NSR. No PVC's, not a glitch. 
    I Mentioned I check my EKG with my KARDIA mobile device. My EP Dr V said that's no good. My KARDIA EKG plate that is.  I tend to disagree.

    What do you think Mellanie?? What do you think Edhammer? What do you think Spencer?

    He did cancel my Merlin Remote home monitor every  3 month XMITS to my cardiac device clinic. Don't need em.

    But my KARDIA EKG plate does not think it's reliable. Any comments?
