Plans to go on a short trip, plans to find him a better job, looking forward to a life without chemo and being NED.
Tomorrow he’s going to a concert (Oncologist approved) and I was writing down his prescriptions just in case, and googled his chemotherapy regimen since I can pronounce the drugs but not spell them. Second link on the page was about a woman talking about her husband who went through all 12 rounds but found out the chemo had done nothing and it had progressed without slowing. The thread was filled with other people with similar circumstances. I’ll admit, I freaked out a little. I mean, I know reoccurrence is a possibility I just figured it would crop up in a year or so, not immediately after treatment is over.
So of course right after this we get his CEA report and his number went up from 3.6 to 4.7. I’m seriously freaking out. They scheduled for it to be retaken on July 30th and I’m trying not to have a meltdown. Is there anything that could cause a jump other than more cancer??
