I haven't posted in a while but I'm still dealing with rising CEA.
The Onc is doing all the tests he can think of to look for cancer. So far a CT Scan (Chest, Abdomen, & Pelvis) and Colonoscopy are clear (no cancer found). The colonoscopy was the first sence the colon resection - surgery is healing well. I'm going in tomorrow morning for a PET Scan, a MRI of the liver, and anbother CEA test. I'll receive the results from this round of testing on Thursday.
Stage IV colorectal cancer really sucks!!! :-)
So, in spite of the rising CEA and all these tests...
I started WORKING OUT again. I am lifting weights and teaching my 12 year old how to lift as well. First day I was able to do ab exercises. The next day I was soooo sore I couldn't do any abs. But I'm taking the weight lifting slow and so far I'm able to work through the soreness. I'm soooo out of shape. But I'm going to stick with this. Take it slow and take it one day at a time!
Hope everyone has a WONDERFUL day today! And I pray that everyone receive positive results!!!
