Was your pathology done at a Designated Cancer Center https://www.cancer.gov/research/nci-role/cancer-centers? These centers are usually at major cancer centers. I would seriously consider getting a second opinion. You can always request one. The reason being is that Grade, LVI, and PNI is subjective. Having a second set of eyes would be beneficial. I know people, Stage II, that had a second pathology done on their tumor and the results changed, especially with grade and LVI. By doing these two things, you would have a piece of mind. I did not have a second pathology, butt it was done at a major cancer center. It would give me more information needed for recurrence.

Some studies have included an elevated CEA (mine was 11 pre-op) as a risk factor while at least one study even listed MSS as a risk factor. What is the usual time to revisit the CEA post-ops? A month after surgery? 3-4 months for things to "settle"?
