Thanks folks....I was so shocked when she called me at 6pm. I have no idea what my CEA number is. I was so
taken aback that I didn't even ask her. I did not have a CEA done prior to treatment (long story) so there
was never a "normal" base number for me. I have been having blood work done for 7 years and this is the
first time that "elevated" CEA has come into play.
I did have a strange blood reading the following week (Chronic Leukemia) related and my blood work
came back as normal. The hematologist is not convinced that it was a spontaneous remission but rather
a "Lab error"......the chances of it being spontaneous remission is 1 in 100 million
so this past few weeks have been "freaky" as far as blood work is concerned.
All the blood work is done in the Cancer Centre of a large teaching hospital....I wouldn't have
thought that there was any chance of "mistakes"
