I can’t believe that we would lie in our graves wondering if we had spent our living days well.

I can’t believe that we would lie in our graves dreaming of things that we might have been.

So…bad news.

My cancer antigen 15-3 test came back high. This is the test they do to look for a recurrence. So now I’m spending all day Wednesday doing scans and labs. I meet with my oncologist on Friday to go over the results.

I’m worried, like really worried, which should go without saying. I guess it’s not definitive, but it’s def not a good sign. We’re a mess over here. A fucking mess, dude.

I always knew it would come back for me at some point, but I’m not ready yet.

Send me good vibes if you can spare them.

  1. I’m sure you know all this, but just to remind you:

    “Even beyond its non-specificity, the CA 15-3 test has low sensitivity (the percentage of time it gets a diagnosis correct). In fact, according to 2015 study from Germany, the CA 15-3 test has a sensitivity of only 55.6% when used to diagnose metastatic breast cancer.

    Due to its potential for false-positive results, the American Society of Clinical Oncologists (ASCO) advises against the use of tumor marker tests to screen for new or recurring breast cancer.”

    Also, ONE of the (many) things that can lead to false positives are certain liver problems, including, unfortunately, cirrhosis… or perhaps incipient cirrhosis. I mention this unpleasant subject because I have the impression that over the last 10 or 15 years, you’ve swallowed a LOT of alcohol.

    Best wishes for good luck with this shit.
