Good news

Postby Capri » Fri Nov 02, 2018 8:46 am

My son had a colon resection in January and completed 5 months of FOLFOX on July 30. His port was removed in October.
He had a clean colonoscopy this morning--thanks be to God! The GI Dr wants a repeat in 3 years and annual Hemoccult.
Oncologist has a CT scan scheduled for December along with more blood work. CEA in Sept. was 1.2; however it was normal when he was Dx'd so not a good marker for him I suppose (?), but I'll take a normal result!
