My Scans are March 6th MRI and 8th Pet Scan. I usually get the result same day if everything is clear, the oncologist releases it to mychart and I can read it. I am hoping its just inflammation from my ileo reversal, but I see others have had reversal without elevated CEA. It's very stressful.
I always remember when I didn't do the surgery back in June of 2017 for the rectal cancer when I was stage 3. I keep thinking I gave myself a death sentence, and I let my family know (parents) because there not a big believer in Doctors, as they think there thieves, so frustrating. I get upset when they try to give me advice, drink LOTS of water, it flushes your system, drink soursop leaves tea, blah blah blah blah.....I know they mean well and just trying to cope with there son, possibly not being around down the road, or going through all of this.
I will keep on trucking, but I hate that I made a bad decision with my young family. I am so disappointed in myself.
