Re: 2nd read of PET

Trying to work your CEA out! So it has come down since July but bounces around 8 . We have now got to consider something else influences my mum’s CEA . On two separate occasions it has bounced up but scanned well on both occasions. Then dropped back down of it’s own accord . The only thing she was c...

Re: What should I do???

Hi ,
Yikes that’s so hard . But given nothing is showing and no action is being taken why take that away from him . Today matters as much as tomorrow. I would let him enjoy it too.
Take special care of yourself too!

Re: A fractured second opinion

Hi , My mum was a brilliant responder to chemo which did actually created a barrier . Her oncologist wanted to remain with a treatment that worked .

Re: Almost 8 years update

Delighted to hear your update. The same thoughts have crossed my mind about corona . Think the survival strategies are never far from the surface and used to taking life in smaller chunks , not looking too far ahead at an unpredictable future . Roll with the punches and making the most of the good t...

Re: A fractured second opinion

Hi , I can see your dilemma, in a good position being NED but also wanting to ensure the most effective pathway is selected going forward . One thing I would do if was my family member would be to have a meeting with a Hipec surgeon and see what they would suggest going forward. I found the speciali...

Re: Xeloda Avastin Maintenance Plan

Hi ,
My mum used Xeloda two years in a row . Both times her CEA went up and did not come back down until her 6 cycles were over . However her scans showed significant shrinkage each year .
Take care ,

Re: Generational Colon Cancer

Hi and welcome , The unique thing about this forum to me is it’s been around for a long time . That allows long term stage 4 survivors to come back and encourage others just starting out . I got my eyes on a few of them when my mum was first diagnosed . Thankfully I still have my eyes on some of the...

Re: Mother's State IV cancer - options at this point?

Sorry to hear about your mum’s situation . From an oncologist point of view it sounds very thorough . However purely from our own experience my mum responded really well to chemo and her oncologist was very negative about surgery . However we decided to hear directly from a surgeon in the field .
