I went for results of Ct scan yesterday, and they found out why I am in such pain. The radiation has inflamed my bile duct. They siad this happens in 1/2 of 1 %. Just my luck. The tumor has shrunk already though significantly in just a month. They want to do the left side but need to wait til the bile duct is not pissed off any more! One of the the 2 spots on right side is gone completly--they could not even see it at all.
Now for the PET results tomorrow! I hope they are good too. My cea is an alltiem low for me. It is less than one!!

    Fantastic news on the CEA and tumors. So sorry the radiation has caused inflammation and pain (and that you've had to join the 1/2% club), but so glad that is the cause and not tumors!

    The pain is coming from your kidneys perhaps ?
    If the bile duct is plugged up won't that not allow your kidneys to function properly getting rid of the toxins within. That in itself is a very serious matter...your kidneys need to function properly...Im glad to hear that they found the problem, but the pain tells me that the kidneys are suffering, and thats not a good thing....Hopefully it will resolve itself shortly....Love and Hope, Buzz

    Your markers sound tremendous...Good for you !!!
