I was diagnosed in Feb. 2004 with Stage 1 colon cancer. I had a colon resection, but did not have to undergo chemo or radiation. My CEA level right after surgery was 8. Checking it every three months the levels have been 12, 11, 14, 16. I had a colonoscopy in January, and it was clean. CT scan last week was normal. Am waiting for results of PET scan. I'm trying to remain optimistic, but occasionally my thoughts turn to the worst. Has anyone else experienced this? Thanks so much for listening and your help.
