Hi! EVERYBODY. I've been away for some time - busy with the grandkids and work. I always have kept everybody in my prayers and I love everyone of you. Question? My CEA level has been rising so I went for the normal PET and they saw a 2 1/2cm lesion on my liver that now has to be removed along with follow up chemo. I'm confused because I feel really good and don't want to go back there again, but if I don't, it could just keep spreading right? I have almost 5 yrs in since my last diagnosis. When I was last diagnosed, I had an obstruction - had a colon resection with an ablation on my liver. I feel this time around it wouldn't be quite as bad. BUT THE CHEMO. BLAHHH. If I agree to the chemo will it make me worse or will I get another 5 years. Though I think the chemo had suppressed the cancer from coming back sooner. Should I get a second opinion - or find my way back there again and try for another 5 years. Can anybody relate? Thanks.
