Last summer, I was diagnosed with autoimmune hepatitis. This seems to be complicating my CRC follow up. My CEA, previously dependable for me, appears no longer so. I have been told my slowly rising CEA is due to the hepatitis. Scans of my liver are also confused by the hepatitis. I am concerned that what I previously depended on no longer serves me well and the hepatitis will mask a recureence. I do have a good team at Mass General, including a liver speciatiist. I am still learning about autoimmune hepatitis. Am I overreacting? Any advice or questions I should be asking?
