Re: Stage 3c NED

That's great news. FYI, we started our NED status the day after surgery! Now go celebrate and do something special!

Re: Coffee...yes or no?

My husband loves coffee, but for some reason after his surgery he has been unable to drink it. It causes severe diarrhea! Even being over 8 years out, still happens. I guess it's Gods way of telling him hot to drink it. No problems at all with tea. Go figure.

Re: Full blood count

When my husband was DX with stage II several years ago, he was anemic when they did his blood work. Then a scope was done and there it was! Everybody is different as to whether things show in the blood work or not.

Re: High biluribin ?!

My husband also had high bilirubin rates while undergoing chemo. They kept an eye on it and after chemo, within several months, they came back down. Our oncologist said that my husbands liver didn't like the chemo. He really never had any problems and his eyes too were jaundice at times. I hope it's...

Re: Help for my Dad

I don't think whether you eat or not has any effect on CEA. Keep in mind that you can draw for a cea in the morning and it can be 3.0 and two hours later draw for another one it it can be 3.3 and yet two hours after that draw for one it it may be 2.9. They can fluctuate within hours with different b...

Re: Help for my Dad

Most likely, they will repeat his cea in about 6 weeks. If it is a re occurrence, it will usually continue to rise if his cea is a good marker for him. Some people who have colon cancer never have an elevated cea. What was his before surgery? If it was elevated some, did it go down after surgery? if...

Re: Stage IV colon cancer - liver cysts

On several of my husbands pet and ct scans, they mentioned cysts in his liver, kidney and pancreas, all of which remained stable for over five years. Our oncologist at MDA told us from the start not to worry about them because it was very clear on the scans they were cysts, but of course I worried. ...

clean scope

Hello everybody, My husband had a colonoscopy Monday and he was clean as a whistle. He is now 8 years out from surgery, 7 1/2 years out from chemo and has remained NED from stage IIbt4a colon cancer. I can't believe it's been 8 years already. Next colonoscopy is in three years. We feel extremely ble...
