wwroam Posted May 18, 2017 Share Posted May 18, 2017 In June 2007 I was diagnosed with Stage IIIA Colon Cancer. Resection and 6 months of Folfox chemotherapy followed. This was followed with 6 month blood tests ( primarily CEA and LDH tests). This went fine until January this year when the CEA bumped up . I scheduled an appointment 2 months later and my CEA had gone up again. Off for a PET scan and 2 light ups. One EBUS biopsy later to confirm a new primary ( Stage III, T1N2M0) not a late metastasis of my CC. I now have a new oncologist and have completed 2 complete GemCarb cycles of chemo. I have had zero side effects with this regimen and am quite happy for the moment to let the professionals make the decisions. I don't know where this is going , I'm just here for the ride.
