Worried for Mom

My 78 year old mom was diagnosed with inoperable uterine cancer last year. She is curently undergoing weekly treatments of Taxol. However, she is still quiet anemic and is going to consult with the GI doctor tomorrow. She has never had a colonoscopy/endoscopy and is quite fearful. Her CEA is 1 and CA 125 is 31. Any thoughts? Could she possibly have two cancers at the same time?

A CEA of 1 is excellent.

Sounds like Mom's uterine cancer is spreading and causing her to lose blood somewhere.

Wishing her well.
