Hello everyone. My name is Debbie and I have Stage 3b colon cancer. I was diagnosed June 2011, received chemo and have been doing fairly well since...tiredness never goes away. I just recently had my six month CT scan and will have to have another one in 3 months because of some enlarged lymph nodes. I was hoping some of you could help me make heads or tails out of my report..it reads:
Retroperioneal adenopathy and mesenteric adenopathy have developed
portacaval node demonstrated which measures 1.8 cm
multiple enlarged left para-aortic and tneraortocaval nodes have developed extending caudally in the left para-aortic area to just above the bifurcation
Mesenteric adenopathy found in left upper midabdomen. No adrenal esions demonstrated
I know we don't rely on what we find on the internet but everything keeps referring to lymphoma, so I was hoping someone might could help on this board.
My CEA over the last 9 months has gone from .01 to .09 to 1.3, I know that is still in the normal range but it is moving up.
Thank you all for any thing you can share with me. My aunt battled B Cell non hodgkins lymphoma for about 10 years before it finally won.
