My Onc is sending me in for a staging study. I had pre-labs for a minor foot surgery 12/23/20 and my surgeon was very concerned about several of my results. I met with my GP and she did an exam and said she needed to consult with my Onc. My HCG and Alk Phos were ver high. GP didn’t think it was my liver, all my other tests looked normal. I am scheduled for a bone scan CT and labs Wednesday. Not sure what to think. I have been having deep pain in my ribs and sternum, but put it down to radiation scarring. I was originally diagnosed May 2012 with TNBC W/lymph node on the left and ER+ PR+ HER2- on the right

Has anyone else had a similar experience?

You would think before doing the scans they would do the simple blood test again. On the other hand at least you are getting it all done in one day? I hope it turns out to be a total fluke. hugs.
