oh, yeah, forgot to post in other reply about my CEA. it seems we've had several posts about it lately. Mine went from 9.1 in March, to 9.2 in April to 9.3 now. I know it's a slow increase. Do you think this is anything to worry about. I know when I had cancer before, my CEA was never elevated at all. What do you think?
Love and prayers, Judy

    From reading the responses to jcavanaugh, on 5/11, it sounds as though you shouldn't worry about this at all. One of the postings reported about how they ran two CEAs on the same patient on the same day and got two different readings! You've got enough on your mind and body without borrowing more stress from an unreliable test.
