I have stage iv a cc. I have had a colon resection, a lverresection and completed 9 rounds of Folfox so far. My oncologist wants to drop the oxalplatin after ronund 10, and give me only the 5fu for the last two. He then wanshame to have a ct scan about a month after chemo and if all looks good then every four to six months thereafter. Cea is not an indicator for me and has always been normal, as well as ca 19 (I thinkthat his what it is). I'm a little worried about the timing of scans and am wondering what others who do not have cea as an indicator have done.
