Good news: I'm not doing any more Google research. I'm still reading stuff about cancer, like new treatments and things like that, but no more statistics.

I even checked back in with the book last week, when I was sure my liver complications (chills, achiness, slight abdominal pain and eventually high enzyme numbers in my bloodwork) indicated METS.
Got an early CT scan. All clear! Phew! We are currently celebrating potential liver damage over here in my house!
Sorry you are in pain. I felt a very deep despair 23 months ago. Sending "stranger" love and hope your way.

I started chemo late January. I'm following a tough protocol and it's physically (and mentally) quite rough. My cancer doesn't "express" high CEA, nevertheless it went down from 8.5 to 6.5 (normal value being 5) after two chemo rounds... We'll see.
