Re: new to the forum i'm worried about my mom high cea

Hi ,
How is your mum’s CEA now ? Interestingly my mum’s CEA went up to 5.5 in Nov from 4 and dropped to 5.2 . She was scanned six weeks before and the scan was good .
Take care ,

Re: Is your life worth the fight?

Hi , I am absolutely convinced some people would investigate a car purchase more than their very pressing health needs . I communicated with one lady who “ liked her team” and quietly dispaired as she moved from operable to inoperable . The nicest lady ever . So it goes . Still put the message out b...

Re: So confused

Chemo also caused similar pain in my mum . We put awee call into her surgeon and he was lovely and talked it through . There is no harm in popping into ER just to get it all checked out . However there is no need for rudeness and I expect the very same people would protest loudly if spoken to in tha...

Re: Multiple reoccurrence survival stories

My mum has recurred twice . Once after a liver resection then a few years later a lung resection . She is doing great . Keeps healthy and I make her walk . She does say I am becoming very bossy! Sounds as though his recurrence was need the first liver met so many just revealing what was already ther...

Re: NED maybe. Stage 4, after 10 years Free. FOLFIRi?

Just want to pop on and say how remarkable you are despite a horrible bump on the road . The details of the last few weeks have given you the space to handle your mum’s funeral and that’s so special . Precious days for sure . I can’t answer your question regarding the chemo as my mum has come almost...

Re: Lung Issues/ When to be concerned

Hi , My mum had no real symptoms when she had her lung met. Is CEA a good indicator for him ? I don’t think it’s unreasonable at all to get it checked out with the oncologist. Or if you get no joy with that Avenue back through his GP . Probably nothing but getting it when it was small made the world...

Re: Questions about mom's pathology report & what to do next

Now that comes up a lot . With regards to the surgeon I would be more concerned about their clinical skills . As long as they are good in theatre then that’s all I would be concerned about . However I take a different approach to an oncologist especially in a stage 4 setting where there is a longer ...

Re: Questions about mom's pathology report & what to do next

Hi , It is pretty universal that cancer that has spread requires a systemic response . It’s a good plan going straight to chemo as it allows her current tumours to get tackled and also allows any lurking micro disease to be treated . Most oncologist and surgeons would take this as their starting poi...
