catstaff wrote:Is that three more cycles after already 20? Seems like a lot if it's gotten your CEA so low (congratulations, by the way). My DH has done 12 and it's beaten him up, mostly due to anemia. He has two more scheduled, including one Monday. His CEA is still dropping though at a much slower rate than initially.
