Went to my onc on 3/21 after surgery. CEA was under 1. Onc did not think chemo would help at this point. He said I have had the main go-to chemo (FOLFOX & Oxciliplatin then FOLFIRI and Erbitux).  If I can make it a year without a reoccurrence he would consider chemo again. He did mention other chemo we could try but didn't think the benefit justified it, given the side effects.  

Next CEA test is 4/10.  Next Scans are May 1.

i'm feeling great and today was a beautiful day! 

Thank you Father God!

I actually think it's great news that chemo is not in your immediate future.  Enjoy the break (hopefully permanent!).
