My husband was told he had colon cancer it will be 3 years this coming May. He had surgery then chemo for a year and a half. Had 9 months off and then he was told he had peritoneal mets. He has been on chemo for 16 months this time. His body couldn't take it any more. He had to take a chemo "vavation". He had off for 5 weeks. CEA wnet from 289 which is pretty close to where he runs to we found out today 455. This is the highest he has ever been. This is why he has so much belly pain. We knew in our hearts that something was going on. He had a good 4 weeks, Me and the kids (10 and 22) felt like we had him back. It was awesome. Then the last week lots of pain and sleepless nights.
He is such a trooper. He still works monday thru thursday 10 hour days so that he gets all of his hours in.
He is on Irenotecan, 5 FU for 47 hours, Zaltrap, folfox and erbitux
I am very scared he is only 43 years old and we have lots of plans for when we grow old together. I have no more tears left. I love to see your positive stories and also good advice.
Just thought I needed to post tonight not sure why just did.
