Things have been improving after ileostomy reversal, going much less, still hate the unpredictability when I have to go, but it's been better.
Just had my NM PET/CT SKULL-THIGH and MRI done. All came back clear and good. So still NED. My CEA was 1.2 when I did the test in September, This time it is 3.2 and even though all came back fine, with PET/MRI I am feeling a bit nervous and concerned. My oncologist after I emailed him and asked what it was, he released it, and that usually means there not concerned.
Anyone else seen this fluctuation. I am taking Metamucil daily and probiotics and immodium, no sure if that would cause any of this. From Scanxiety to CEA Anxiety, ugh...
