Re: Probably lung mets

I'm just guessing but possibly the interventional radiologist will attempt to do a biopsy but that it will be hard to obtain due to the location. Treatment will be determined after biopsy???

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!

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!
