Hello- I so appreciate the knowledge of so many of you on here! If you have any words of wisdom for me on the following, I’d greatly appreciate it!
My CEA started out crazy high (all in my signature) and has come down so far I was determined chemo would continue to shrink tumors. I had to postpone my last treatment of FOLFOX + Avastin (treatment 9) due to low platelets. It was postponed by 1 week and during that week my CEA went from 187 to 240.
Does anyone know if this means cancer is growing that fast?! Treatment 9 was yesterday and was my last one with Avastin as I will only do 1 more instead of my original plan of 12 due to finding a surgeon willing to help me, Thanks be to God!!
Surgeon wants to hold off Avastin due to possible surgery in 4-6 weeks post chemo. My main concern is if CEA went up that much in 1 week what will it do in 4-6??! Will this prohibit a surgery from happening? Or am I just crazy overreacting?
Thanks for taking the time to read this I really do appreciate all of you so much
Blessings to you all
