Don't panic about things that you cannot influence << I agree - easier said than done >>.
As Basil said, there are many options these days. Keep in mind that you're in the hands of docs who have spent half their lives understanding cancer.
One good thing is that you already know is that your CEA may well be a good indicator for you - easy to monitor.
I started off with liver mets that were too big for resection. Had a rough ride and chemo wasn't easy, but effective.
I wish you the same.
Don't spend too much time on Google
Don't conclude anything from what you find before you've soon your ons seen your oncs
Take it day by day / celebrate each and every success however small
Best wishes, Leon
