Question: Has anyone had a large spike in their cea afer switching treatments. My dad switched from vextibux/campostar to 5 flu/erbitrux, and campostar and his cea shot up 115 points in 2 weeks. Anyone had such a reaction? In the past, his cea has never climbed like this while on treatment (whether it was working or not). I am getting nervous. We have an appointment with a specialist at Hopkins tomorrow and I hope that he can help my dad.

    I'm sorry, I don't have any answers for you, but I saw that no one had replied. It's not that we're not reading, it's that no one has an answer. Please let us know how that appointment went. Hugs and prayers,
