Hi Cotton, you 125 is still within normal range. When did you have a ct last? I know they prefer not to give them unless you are feeling unwell. But one a year should be the norm if not every six months, it depends on the consultant. They also go by clinical assessment, pain, energy levels, appetite etc. I wouldnt worry just yet, if you wish do ask your onc why has the 125 jumped a bit but there could be a reason for it, you may have an underlying infection etc. Wish you the best with your appointment


Thanks for reply, I had a ct scan in February tis year, I do feel very tired and have flu like symptoms, my skin is also breaking out....
