Gail I am so very sorry to hear your latest news.
 
You pose a good question, is there a conection between leukemia and triple neg.  I am going to look into that too.  Let us know what you find out.
 
I'm late reponding so maybe now you have found some answers to your questions and have found the right team to help you.
 
Best wishes,

Thank you my triple sisters for reaching out to me. I am dealing with this new dx the best way I know which is to round up a team to help answer these questions. I haven't gotten any answers yet but I sense things will come to a head soon. I do have a phone consult arranged a week from today with a naturapath who specializes in oncology (my naturapath referred me to him). Meanwhile I have someone at the Cancer Centers of America checking insurance things for me and someone at Sloan Kettering doing the same. I also have made an appointment with a specialist on CLL for later May which I may or may not keep. Any info you find please do share it with me and I will do the same. Meanwhile, each day has its beauty and I figure I should be enjoying it. My best to you all, Gail

DX 2-07, mastectomy 3-07, 4 AC finished 6-07 stage 1 triple negative
 
I have been celebrating my 1 year from diagnosis, 1  year from  surgery and next month my one year from end of treatment.  However on my last 3 month checkup in April, the tumor markers went up and I had to have my first ever CT scan and bone scan.  I knew from lurking on this board that tumor markers are not that reliable in all cases and that they sometimes give false positives.  But it didn't relieve all of the anxiety.  Today I learned the results of the scans - absolutely normal!  Thanks to all of you that posted in the past about tumor markers. It gave me hope to hang on while I waited for the results.

Granny, I'm so happy for you! What a relief. The waiting and wondering is so hard, but the farther out from your diagnosis you get, the less you'll have this hanging over your head. Congrats on your 1-year anniversary. Rena

Hi Coco,
 
Here's the definition from the American Cancer Society:
 
Tumor markers are substances that can be found in the body when cancer is present. They are usually found in the blood or urine. They can be products of the cancer cells themselves or of the body in response to cancer or other conditions. Most tumor markers are proteins.
Hope that helps. 
Warmly,
Sadie
