Deep breath. Today we got the result of my mom's CT scan. My mom's oncologist stopped by for a little to inform us that the CT scan came back clear. She had a fellow MD intern that talked to us and mentioned that my Mom is positive for KRAS Mutation. I have come across the terminology but did not really bother knowing about it since nothing was mentioned that my mom has it. Can someone please enlighten me about this? The intern mentioned about limited chemo treatments but did not really expound on it.
Another thing is prior surgery, mom's CEA is 189. Post surgery it was 8.4. Beginning 3rd cycle (2 weeks ago) it went down to 6.4 then just today, her CEA is back up again to 8.2. Honestly I got concerned about it. KRAS mutant and CEA level up? I am scared
