Re: CEA again

I think you're like me, CEA is not a good indicator of anything. I met with my oncologist yesterday and she pretty much told me that. Yours is around 3.4. When you had full blown T3 it was 6.1. Check what might be causing inflammation in your life, you event went to 4.6 in 2020 and nothing happened...

Re: surveillance schedule for stage 3

This month marks 10 years post 3C CRC diagnosis for me. NED and back to normal for many years now. After 3 years without recurrence surveillance dropped way off - they started to suggest I was likely cured at that point. After that I think I had a CT scan (pelvis and torso) one more time at the 4 y...

Re: New Sigmoid colon cancer diagnosis

Sorry you are here, but welcome! It is so important to take one day at a time. It is overwhelming but you will get the hang of it. Try to stay off google. If I had questions I would have my friend google it so she could sort through all the noise and just give me the answer I was lookin for. So much...

Re: surveillance schedule for stage 3

Hey CR Guy!
Good to be here :D

I will check it out, thanks.

My oncologist says I am “almost done having to see him, (barring any issues between now and January) and I just can’t fathom that. Just curious if that has been the case for anyone else.

Thanks for your reply

surveillance schedule for stage 3

Hello,
For those who are stage 3- what is your surveillance schedule? How often are scans, and when do you stop... 5 years? Curious to hear if this varies doctor to doctor.
And those who are past 5 years, do you have zero oncology visits now?
Thanks for any info,
Ksue
