Just an update, Cycle 4 just completed and CEA gradually keeps going up, I hate CEA....from 5.0 to 6.1 to 8.1 now. Oncologist said that let's see what CT Scan shows and if we have to throw in some Irinetocan (big boy) to bring it back down. Ugh!! I hate Irinetocan, but I will do it if it brings it down, and then continue the maintenance. But I could be jumping the gun here, so cross fingers that its nothing or something they can just zap with Radiation.
Cancer really sucks. Other issue I have is gas just stuck in my abdomen, lower track and it goes and come, eventually it get's out, but I think when I have a bowel movement is when its better. This usually happens if I don't have a bowel movement for a day, which probably means I am constipated, well I know I am cause the poop is like little balls. For those of you with Colostomy do you have this occasional issue? Does Metamucil help with this or recommend something?
