DarknessEmbraced wrote:I found out why my ct scans were moved up and it has nothing to do with scheduling. It's because my CEA(tumor marker) is 46. Before surgery in 2014 it was below 1 and it has always been below 1 up until now. I get my ct scan on September 22nd and see the doctor for follow up on October 5th. From everything I'm reading normal CEA is below 5.

I still think you should have your CEA re-tested before they do the CT scan. Is there any way you can get one of your doctors to order the re-test now?
Or could you contact Horizon Healh Network to see if they could arrange a re-test for you?
