Hi guys, I just wanted to say I'm relatively new here, but I have met wonderful people, I hope all of you are doing well. My husband's dr appt was today and they told us that his CEA level had gone up some. In March his cat scans were clear (He has Stage 3 Rectal Cancer)..She told us that sometimes the chemo makes it go up. I was wondering if anyone else has heard this, or if your levels had ever gone up and everything was still fine over the next several months. It was AGAIN one of those hot flash moments in the dr office.....I'm sure you all know what I'm talking about. Thanks for your help.
