Glad to hear you're done with chemo and your scans were clean. My husband, Bruce, has signet cell. Can I ask what your pathology was? Bruce's was poorly differentiated. He was dx. back in December, 2008 (see my sig.), and will have his next scans in Dec. or Jan. He just had his CEA done and it went down a tenth of a point to 0.8. He feels pretty good, but sometimes he still has fatigue. I'm not sure if it's from the chemo or rads, or if it's just old age!
Some tips you can take from Bruce are he exercises (he does at least three x's/wk.), takes Vitamin D3, flaxseed, fish oil, hardly eats any red meat or processed meats, eats more veggies, and drinks green tea.
One more thing...Bruce had to have radiation (which is rare with colon cancer) because he had positive margins when they removed the tumor. So he had five weeks of radiation, taken with Xeloda, in between his Folfox tx.
He's coming up on his three-year anniversary on Dec. 7 (dx.) or Dec. 11 (surgery). We celebrate both days!! And everyday in between!! We pray he keeps getting good reports and I hope the same goes for you!!
