So I was able to get the nephrostomy tube removed and they placed a stent in my right ureter. They suspect a tumor was the cause of my blockage. Exactly two weeks later I was back in hospital this time because my left kidney failed. Same problem with same solution. CT scan showed possible new peritoneal mass but get this......My CEA went from 43-26 this month. hmmn??? anyone have any thoughts on this? CEA going down but possible new mass found. CT also does not detect any node involvement. I am now getting a PET on OCt 11 to determine what is going on. Could this possible turn out to be good news??? If there are no nodes then I would now be a surgical candidate. Maybe even eligable for HIPEC. I hate to get my hopes up until after PET scan. The CT also stated...colon normal,appendix normal, liver normal, lungs normal, spleen normal. Just the possible mass near my bladder. Does anyone have any thoughts on this odd situation?
