I will give you a brief update on my history.I am grade IV metastized colon cancer to liver. I had colectomy, liver resection (60% removed) I was on two types of chemo for one year.I tested cancer free, and I have been checked every three months for 9 months.I had one of my routine DR visits, he does lab at that time also. My CMP was elevated, CEA was 3.9, and my WBC was 4. WBC has not been higher since I completed chemo. I also have a small amount of fluid in my rt lung.with these findings my ONC decided to move my PET, and CT up one month. I wanted to know if anyone has experienced the same. Can the labs be off for other reasons? I am having a very hard time staying calm until the first week of June.I would appreciate post from anyone who has the time.
