I am sorry to hear about your discomfort and CEA increase.
I am not familiar with bone mets, but I am thinking your Onc should be talking with you about a plan of attack on it! If not I would get on their case and push them to for answers.
Best wishes, Celeste

We add celecoxib, and IV vitamin C 1-2x per week, to the chemo in order to stress the cancer cells, reduce to fatiguing, angiogenic histamine, and to relieve pain. We add menaquinone-4, the actual human form of vitamin K2 with a corresponding transporter protein and a supplement for osteoporosis, to stress the cancer cells more and to reduce bone invasion. This helped subside both CEA and CA19-9 (at peak values lower than yours) when previous chemo without these ingredients, flagged.

most of 2010 Life Extension recommendations and possibilities + more, some (much) higher, peaking ~2011-12, taper to almost nothing mid 2018, mostly IV C
