Cea question

I have seen most protocol for Cea test is three months after surgery. I had my colon resection in November. Stage 1 cancer and my dr wants Cea test every 6 months/ colonoscopy and ct scan yearly. Have any of you waited 6 months for Cea test after surgery.

Pain 4 months after surgery

So I had a colon resection on nov 2 and have random times of colon pain, lower back pain and abdomen pain. Lately I am scared it's back, but could it just be nerve/ continued post surgery issues. I am worried all over again

Re: Scared Newbie
