I hope all is well. I got my CT results back (I had one done on Monday because my CEA had jumped from 2.0 to 3.6) and everything is stable... No new spots! Yeah! I'm very happy and relieved. On a seperate note, however, I am wondering if I should pursue more aggressive treatments. Back in September, 8 spots in my right lung and 4 spots in my left were detected. I have been doing chemo ever since and no new mets. have developped. All the spots are very, very tiny (only one is bigger than a centimeter). Should I be pushing for a surgery? Can they take out that many lesions? Can they not operate when they are so tiny? Don't get me wrong... I'm ecstatic that the disease is being controlled while my quality of life is maintained, but what about going for a cure? Anyways, most of these questions are rhetorical... Just had to voice them.
Wishing everyone an awesome week-end (t.g.i.f!),
