My Wife has been battling CRC since last November. Just yesterday we found that her CEA had jumped from 48 to 100. Is this normal and does it ussually jump like that? I feel very stupid about this because I have just been working to support her because she can't. By this I mean I haven't done any investigation on the subject until just recently. Also they are talking about giving her a break until the middle of next month and then starting her on a different kind of Chemo? Is this normal? The last Chemo she was getting was making her fingers and feet numb so she had a hard time walking. I am just feeling so frustrated and depressed that I don't know what to do or where to go. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.
