Re: Help and confused

Hi, You will have noticed that we have a different treatment protocol in the UK to the US . In the UK it is quite common to have chemo breaks where they come off chemo until a scan or markers show the need to start again .

Re: CEA increasing trend

Hi.
Having watched my mum's CEA markers for eight years now, they do bounce around a bit. It trends up for a few readings and just when we think ok that's heading upwards it can suddenly drop down.

Re: Things Not to Say and the Responses I want to Make (Rant)

My BIL told me days after my mum's diagnosis that it was good she knew she was dying as she could go out and spend all her money!! I was physically sick after that one. I decided to forgive him as in his own clumsy way he was reaching out. Benben , I am a bit sad for you on the girlfriend front!!! H...

Re: Bad Scan but no rush? Lung nodule

Hi, Really sorry to hear your news. I think with your health care system you are able to get very prompt scans and results. Here in the UK we don't have that type of speed .
