7 years after

Today is exactly 7 years after my husband had a surgery. It was the most difficult time in our life. When on chemo he was laid off, after 14 years of employment. His boss was cruel, simply inhuman, bad person..., he was laid off again, big crisis we all know about...we had to use all our savings to ...

Re: Mean Boss

My husband lost his job when was on chemo ( after 14 years of employment and detication to the company) he got no sympathy from the owner. I strongly believe the reason he got layoff was his illness, we could sue her but decided not to, she was a friend of my mother. You think it's impossible ? .unf...

Re: CEA increase- cause for concern ?

Don't worry. You are still in treatment, your CEA can be elevated due to chemo. My husband's CEA was 1.1, 1.5, 1.6, 1.7
and 1.4, jumped to 2.3, after 3 months is lower 1.6. His oncologist said, if it's in normal range is OK and told us not to worry.

Re: 5 + years NED .What now.

My husband ( dx Jun'07 ) doesn't have to do CT scans anymore, last one he had was 2 yrs ago. His onc. recommends CEA test once a year and colonoscopy every 3 years when clear and regular physical checkups every year like everybody else without cancer. We are ready for 6 years anniversary !
