have been having a heck of a time dealing with the diarrhea from Camptosar/erbitux mix. that's not the bad news. The bad news is that my CEA went up to 23. It had gone down to 13 just 4 weeks ago. I know CEA isn't foolproof, but it's always given me a good indication of waht's going on. Had my Cat scan yesterday. Will get the results tomorrow.
THe reason i'm really scared this time is that I think I've run our of chemo options. I've done 5 FU, Folfox with avastin, foliri with avastin and last but not least camptosar and erbitux. I'm not familiar with any other options.
Please pray. THis is the most scared I've been since the initial diagnosis.

Dear Mary, Im so sorry your so scared. I cant even imagine what your feeling right now. I remember being so scared for my dad everytime he got tests done and I was scared for another person so I can only imagine how scared he must of been. I will say a prayer that you get good cat scan results. Please keep us posted. Mindy

Mary, consider it done. I am hugging you HARD right now...I don't know much about the CEA other than mine started out at 1.5 (yes, one-point-five) BEFORE treatment started on my Stage III rectal cancer, and has fluxuated wildly during different treatments....I send you my best prayers that it is nothing more than that....

Hi Mary,

Virtually sending you HUGS and good vibes for GOOD results. Unfortunately we all sit there and watch our CEA when it might not be as reliable as we think. Think of holding your hand while you wait. Again HUGS!

I am with you honey.

Just remember, there are always options!!!!!!!!

It has been a year and a half since I didn't think I had any (I was scared beyond belief) and look where I am today, NED. I do not regret any of my decisions thus far, and will be sending serious vibes to you as you find yours.

PS. Remember, chemo is not your only option!!!

Hang in there. I remember reading on here before that when all else fails all you really have to do is just breathe. It helped me through some anxious times. I will say a special prayer for you as I am sure everyone else will do as well.

I will keep you in my prayers. Take a deep breath and blow it out. Remember to save the worry until after the results. Worrying won't change anything. I'll shut up and pray. jams
