Had fortnightly bloods yest. My ceas have been very erratic. When first dx ceas normal. Once started chemo rose to 5. 6. Then 4.8.10. One month ago , after changing from xeloda to irrinotecan rose to 50!! Yesterday went down to 25. Who,knows maybe from having my infrared sauna each day helped get rid off crapy toxins. (course I don't have during chemo). Worst part is the insomnia Still God is good and without my faith I'd feel very alone.

Yep I figured nothing to lose. I know Mayo clinic very positive about them. Good luck with yours. Gotta try everything to get rid of these buggers. I'm sure you'll enjoy. God bless

Hi, I hope your CEA continues to go downwards. My CEA results were (over 40 months): 9,11,14,17,23,29,54,119,now 249 because of progressive disease. OR could it be my body is getting rid of CRC dead cells!!!! I love to think so. Enjoy your new sauna.

Best wishes to you…

It is the 50% and that's a lot I think Irinotecan is working my friend! First test was too early to see the results ( I never have test until 2nd infusion).
I think things are turning to positive this time!.
Hugs and good luck!
