I'm waiting on my CEA which is a blood test for tumor markers. My CT scan and MRI's were both clear but the blood test can predict a cancerous growth 4 - 8 months before it's large enough to be seen on any scans. I get so sick waiting. It can take up to 2 weeks for the doctor's office to post the results AND if they were to be high, nothing can be done but wait and retest when I have my scans again in 6 months. Talk about a stomachache! Hope your WBC's are back to normal. Vitamin def's. can cause low iron and low WBC's. Do you not eat a healthy diet? How about taking some generic Centrum vitamins?
Just wanted to send great luck your way and let you now I'm also in breakdown mode waiting on my blood work results. It was just a yearly physical and complete blood work up but I'm absolutely terrified. What's worse is u have a flex sigmoidoscopy scheduled for Monday morning because of periodic blood on my stool and I'm seriously a wreck and I'm talking a COMPLETE mess. I can hardly function on anything. I have been bawling. I hav 4 children ages 7, 5, 4, and 2. Many people an sdoctirs have told me its most likely my hemorrhoids from pregnancy but I'm a wreck. I am a stay at home mom and haven't been able to even do house chores. I have suffered from severe HA and the "c" word phobia since childhood which makes this all worse. I'm hoping to have my CBC results today. I'm obsessively checking my online portal to see if they were posted.
Thanks for the support. Hoping you get your results soon. I'm still a mess. I'm shaking and feeling panic every second of the day. It's torturous
One point low doesn't sound bad at all. My grandmother has lupus a d has had it fr 30 years. It isn't all that fun but it isn't terminal. I think I would take lupus over my CC fear right now. Good luck and hope you get answers soon. What made you start having these tests done? Symptoms?
