My Mother has sailed through Chemo and Radiation with little side effects. She went to see her Chemo doctor for first post check up since end of radiation in August. One blood marker was slightly elevated to 5.9. It should be 5. The doctor has ordered a PET scan.
We were told sometimes after radiation the tumor markers can spike because of tumor death. Has anyone else experienced this? As you can imagine, I am so worried.
