Re: CEA increasing trend

I too worry about my cea since it is a marker for me. Mine is on the upper limit of normal so until the next level is checked I'll be worrying. Can't help it.

Re: This could be LONG ... very long !

Sorry to hear about your mom. I'm wishing her a speedy recovery!

I do believe being a care giver is the hardest because you have so little control over their own choices and feelings. This is where patience comes in handy!

I'm wishing you good luck too!

Re: Went to see the surgeon today

Good luck to you! Funny enough I called my liver mets Larry, Moe, and Curly! They're sitting somewhere in formalin now where all mets should be!

I had my reversal but if the cancer should come back, I know a bag is doable. I cried my heart out when I found out I would need an ileostomy because I didn't know any bett...

Good ct scan
