I hope it does, same for your husband Mohrfamily (10,000?!? That's crazy, I didn't know CEA levels could get that high!). Our experience so far with CEA levels has been an asymtotic curve drop - a lot at first, then more slowly; but levels are still dropping and since there's still a good size tumor present, I'm not surprise that we haven't reached the "below 2" magic value. I'm always super nervous when I log in after the test results get back (worried that numbers will have crept back up) but so far so good
