She is, however, continuing to monitor my levels.
Tuesday, I go in for my 5th FolFox cycle. I can’t help but wonder if the rise in CEA means that the chemo is not being effective.
My surgeon believes that he got all of the present cancer during my surgery, so there shouldn’t be anything we can monitor with a scan.
I see my oncologist again in a month. I’m wondering if I should send her a message about this or just wait until I see her again.
I’m off to do more research.
