CEA Quesition

My husband is nearing the end of his chemo, 2 left. So excited for him. He was unable to do the oxalilplatin, he did half dose once and couldn't do it again. I have a question about the CEA, when he was diagnosed with stage 3 colon cancer his cea was 4.6, a couple months after his surgery it was .7,...

Re: Stomach pain

Thanks Dave,
They got back to us yesterday and asked if he was constipated, and he is, they said it could be that but he's never had a pain before with constipation so we have a message into the Dr again, yesterday they didn't consult her it was just the MA, so today we messaged the dr. Just worried.

Stomach pain

My husband had a low anterior resection in July and is currently doing chemo. About 5 days ago he started waking up in the middle of the night with a pain right below his belly button, it would last maybe an hour or two then he wouldn't have it at all during the day, it seemed to only come on at nig...

Re: Side effects with chemo

Sorry to hear your boyfriend has to endure this too. Hopefully his stomach pains will not last too long. My husband hasn't had diarrhea with his nor constipation sometimes his stomach causes a bowel movement other times it just hurts super bad then eventually goes away

Re: Side effects with chemo

So far today his stomach has been ok but he still keeps having bouts of nausea, this is day 10 is this normal? will it just keep being like this now? He is so tired of feeling sick I'm so afraid he'll just stop if it keeps going on like this.

It will be very bad for hours then i...

Sorry another question about chemo but side effects

Sorry for all the questions, we actually have a call into his doctor but I doubt we will get a call back. Every treatment he seems to get some stomach upset maybe for a day, however this time he has had very bad stomach aches/cramps for like 4 days now, he is barely eating because of it. Is this nor...

Re: Chemotherapy options/help

Oh haha I see that now. My husband is an avid dirt bike rider so he had a crf450 for years so that was my first thought, didn't even think anything else.

Re: Chemotherapy options/help

Thank you CRguy your post was very helpful! I have been doing a lot of research on the added boost and percentage it has. Like Deb said, I just want to throw everything at this cancer, but I also don't want him to have these horrible side effect nor the permanent neuropathy, that would prevent him f...

Re: One Year Recurrence?

Sorry you are going through this. Did you have a low anterior resection? My husband did and since his surgery he gets a pressure down low (anastomosis) but it's this extreme pain/pressue that comes on if he gets constipated or starts having a lot of small bowel movements known as clustering. We have...

Side effects with chemo

I was curious to know if these are possible side effects to chemo. My husband seems to get a very bad stomach with cramping like 5-7 days after his chemo and then this last chemo he had 1/2 dose oxaliplatin added and he has a constant tickle dry cough in his chest. Could these be side effects to the...

Re: CEA and scans

Hmmm yea I am a little concerned although she did say she wasn't too worried since his was so low, she did mention that people that smoke (which my husband does not) typically have higher CEA but now I am concerned and wondering if we should have it checked again.

CEA and scans

I was wondering when everyone else's oncologist does CEA and scans. They did my husbands CEA after his first chemo and it was 0.7 down from 4.7 at time of diagnosis. However, his oncologist said that they wont test again until after he is finished with chemo and I think she said he will have his fir...
