Topic: Ca19-9 steadily rising
I haven't written on here in a while so here's he update on my husband. Since December his tumor marker has been on a steady rise. December it was 70 now it's at 339. Not sure what to make of it. His doctor today rechecked it and we have to wait until Monday for results. She's hoping to see a decline if not I guess some tests will have to be done because she's thinking that maybe something is going on then. Other wise he has been doing great. Week on week off with his gemzar and xeloda(which they have him taking 6 morning and night). He's doing amazingly well in tolerating it so far. The oncologist from U of M would like to see 9 morning and night but the doctor here thinks its going to be too much. I'm trying to take things day by day. Sometimes I still find myself in denial with everything then it hits me like a ton of bricks. Just having a hard time excepting this is happening. Well that's it for now.
