My mom had full body PET CT scan ystday - 1yr followup after surgery,chemo and radiation treatments for RC IIIc stage.
And her CEA was 2.55,2.65,3.05,3.32,3.65 (with <4.3 being normal in the lab here) with 3 months interval.
Showed the scan report to another Onc since our Onc is not available for another 4 days. He said, sometimes pet is more sensitive, with CEA being less than normal - lets wait and see, you can take blood test after 3 months and another pet after 6 months.
Am really concerned as to what this would be and if PET can show something wrong.
Thanks for sharing any useful info on this.
