Hi Judy, Can you please shed some light on your experience at CTCA? My mother was diagnosed on Sept 22,2003 with Breast Cancer, mets to liver and bones. She's currently doing Chemo (Andriamycin & Cytoxin). We have an appointment in Tulsa, OK to visit the CTCA there. What is your condition now? What are you taking? Please, please, can you please give us some more information? Thank you, Dalila in Texas

Hi Joan, I just read your email and can't believe your markers are that high and they are not already doing chemo. Mine are only 45 but I have been going through chemo for about 2 1/2 years. I don't know if I told you that or not. I do have "Chemo Brain". So you are not going to CTCA? I am truly anxious to find out what they have to offer me. My onc says there is no cure and I will be on chemo the rest of my life. Well that is fine and dandy, as long as I am alive, but I sure would like a little quality to go with it and that is what is taking me to CTCA. I will surely let you know how things go and if you are not going there now you may want to consider it. Kepp me informed on your progress and let me know if you have any questions about the different chemo's and their side effects. God Bless you as well. I will keep you in my prayers.

Hi Judy! The norms for the CA15.3 are 0-30. When I was re-dx in Nov.02 it was already 68. The CT does not show any new growth though. I look forward to hearing of your visit and treatment at CTCA. Good luck!

Update Please
