Me too. Sometimes it is also other drugs you are also taking such as paracetamol and other painkillers mine went up went down after stopping painkillers and after chemo. These results can change dramatically from one day to the next. Love Pamxx

Thankyou.
That's all I was trying to ask the nurse yesterday and all she said was she didn't know.
It's hard because it is true the minute you find out about a problem else where cancer is your immediate thought.
I'll try looking up about it.
Thank you for your reply.x

Re: Advice needed regarding blood tests on FEC chemo

Hi im thinking maybe it's something to do with the chemo causing problems to your liver, it doesn't necessarily mean cancer I think I remember reading a possible side effect of chemo can be liver problems? Sorry if no help I just no how hard it is when you are waiting around and feeling confused x

Advice needed regarding blood tests on FEC chemo

Hi,

 

I new to here and just looking for some advice.

I'm 33 and was diagnosed with breast cancer in November when my baby was 14 weeks old.

I had a lumpectomy in December followed by a mastectomy in Jan.

I have just had my second cycle of FEC chemo yesterday, however they have advised that they want me to go for a scan on my liver on Monday as my LFT blood result has risen from 45 to 90 since the last chemo session.

Obviously I have now gone into panic mode thinking there is something seriously wrong, the nurse I dealt with yesterday didnt seem to have many answers when I asked if this was something that could happen during chemo, I get the feeling she was quite new to the job. I know nobody can tell me for definate that the cancer isnt there but I just wanted to find out if anyone had dealt with anything similar.

Thanks in advance.xxx
