Saw my onc this morning to get the results from last weeks CT scan and blood tests.
Scans clean and bloods good. CEA was 2 which is what it’s been every 3mths since my initial surgery.
Doc was stoked and put me on 6 monthly checkups and annual scans.
Now - just need to get a clean bill of health from my colonoscopy on Thursday
