Thank you all for your prayers...they have been answered! Got a clean CT scan and CEA has gone to 1.7! To re-cap, dx'd 7/06, sigmoid ca and had left hemi done for stage 3c. Found 16 of 20 nodes were cancerous. CT was clear. However MD noted CEA was 4.8 before and after surgery, so had Pet which showed 1.5 cm node in pelvis and surgeon decided to leave it for chemo to take care of......CEA did start to recede after chemo begun. Had folfox6 for 8 tx and had to go down to 25% of the dose for last 4 tx's due to decreased health. BUT here I am....meeting with NED and what an honor to meet him:) Next follow up in 3 months. Will continue to surf here and pray all goes well for you and yours. Thanks again for all your prayers and support. I know I'm not out of the woods yet and cancer sure has a strong hold in my family...but I can see the edge of the woods from here, and as I walk out, I'm sure I'm not leaving, a day sooner, than planned:)
