What now?

After 12 years of NED, my recent blood work was not good. I had an abdominal and liver scan today, now have to wait a week for the results. My CEA has risen to 8 just out of the blue and I have lost 5 kilos without trying. Wish I could loose 20 more, I would feel a lot more healthy. Had a chest x-ray which came back normal except for a slightly enlarged heart. I have an appointment to see a new Specialist on January 25th. I have just been very tired and had huge night and day time sweats. I just hope after all this time my CEA is elevated for a reason other than the dreaded CA. Foxy.

Please try not to worry too much -there are plenty of other explanations. Let us know how you get on and try and enjoy Christmas. Jo

I can understand your concern, but there certainly could be other explanations. I know how hard the waiting for results can be. I will be thinking of you as you go through this difficult time, and sending prayers and best wishes your way.

Thank you all for your kind wishes. Had one of those dreaded black tarry episodes in the loo this morning, points to upper GI, maybe just a one only thing, I hope so. Foxy.
