Over the past couple of months, my CEA has been on a steady incline. This week, it's almost doubled again jumping from 939 all the way up to 1739. Me and the onc have been arguing with the insurance company to get a PET scan done like right freaking NOW. The onc's office says they keep getting denials and the insurance company says they haven't had any requests for a scan. I'm hoping to conference call on Monday and find out who is lying (my money is on the insurance company: it's their job to deny claims.)''
I've been sleeping almost all the time since I got home from chemo on Thursday evening (yeah, I slept right through the Mayan Apocalypse) partly from the fatigue and I'm sure there's some depression affecting me also. I was hoping that after three treatments of Zaltrap that I'd be showing some kind of progress instead of steadily increasing set back.
