At my last treatment my CEA markers were up to 380. I had a scan today to see what is going on. Waiting for the results. I hope they come in before Friday. I have lab and treatment on Monday. We will have to discuss what treatment to do next. Folfox,folfri with Erbitux done 2 times. 5fu was discontinued on the last treatment of folfri due to constant diarrhea. That resolved those issues but my markers started climbing. Does xeloda cause the diarrhea like 5fu? Need some swinging chickens and prayers for our next steps. Thanks.
