Topic: Husbands CA19-9
My husbands been doing really well. He had a few side affects from the cisplatin, feet tingling and some hear loss. He has been off it for a little over a month now. Just taking gemzar. His CA19-9 even come down to 70 when it was tested 3 weeks ago. Now just last Friday they checked the tumor marker and it jumped to 98 but all the other liver tests were normal. I don't know if its a reason to be worried but I am. I'm afraid that if all liver levels were normal and the tumor marker is starting to go up does it mean that the cancer could be else where? The tumor marker had been on a steady decline so I'm not sure what to make of this. We weren't scheduled to see the doctor for another 3 weeks. I had just called on the results. You would think the doctor would call.
