surgeon appt/ND appt update

Postby beach sunrise » Fri Jul 09, 2021 2:58 pm

Still hunting reason for high CEA and a few other markers.
CT scan was clear so doing PET in next few weeks to check for pelvic recurrence maybe. Last PET was Sept 2020, it was clear with mention of hypermetobolic activity along resection so thought it was post surgical inflammation related most likely.
Also in the works is getting a 7T MRI scan.
With ND we are trying Niacinamide for underlying inflammation and other pathway blocking hopefully. Nausea is a side effect but who cares about nausea, it won't kill me but cancer will. I'll try it out.
