6 to 18?
My father had colorectal cancer back in 2014... went thru 2 rounds of chemo, 2 rounds of radiation, surgery to remove part of his colon, etc. He was doing fantastic after the surgery and went into remission. About a year ago they found some spots on his lung scans which were extremely small and couldn't even do a biopsy on it plus all his tests were still coming back great. He had another appointment with his doctor 3 weeks ago and his doctor looked over his catscan he had done as well as did a check up and his doctor said he looks and sounds great and he's doing great overall.
Today... 3 weeks later... we got a call from the doctor (he does inhouse testing as well but only takes about 2 to 3 days to get back the tests) saying he must get a catscan ASAP because his levels went from 6 to 18. What does that mean? Is he really sick? The doctor had mentioned he doesn't exactly know if he has cancer again?... and then I dont understand why he is telling us this 3 weeks later? Any ideas?
I am so worried about this as well as my dad and mom obiviously. I am trying to be positive because my dad looks MUCH better and his weight is staying stable and has no signs that anything is wrong other than the test.
Hello everyone. I was 38 when they found my tumor in my colon. It was removed and I had a left colectomy it didn't spread anywhere else but I had 6months of chemo in case. My first colonoscopy a year later it came out clear in sep 2017 I have my first scan but for now I am NED. I wanted to know if anyone still has problems with their bowels? I can go 6 times a day to being constipated I don't...
Hi everyone! As of yesterday evening, Mary was out of the ICU and in a regular hospital room. She is sleeping a lot. Doctors are trying to determine how well her kidneys are functioning. She is definitely doing better, but still needs our prayers. Thanks!
Mary is currently intubated in the ICU, due to her lungs filling with fluid. She is currently being kept under sedation and is completely reliant upon a ventilator in order to breathe. Please keep her in your thoughts and prayers today. Thanks!
