I don't think you should feel "certain" about an HCC recurrence with a 10.6 AFP test.
Mike's MRI was perfect, HCC wise and his AFP is 40.9 last labs, up from 34.5 in February. It is a worry, but he is okay we think. Oncology later this month, but we have not gotten too frightened though the reference range is <6.1.
Talk more when you are rested up. We rested today after the several days in Miami.
