Hi Dr Heinrik,
My dad was diagnosed with at least stage 1 colon cancer 1 and a half year ago and he got part of his colon removed. After the surgery he did go for regular check-ups and CT. The lowest CEA reading he got was end last year at 2.5 and it went up to 2.9 and 3.5 after every 3 months. The last reading (last week) was 3.7 and his surgent asked him back for a pull in CT.
I am worry and his CEA when the cancer was found was 4.5. What other procedures we could expect from the surgeon if a CT is clean or otherwise?
My husband had part of his prostate removed almost 3 mo,s ago and has severe groin pain all cat scans and ultra sounds have come back negative. Dr's can't give us a straight answer just more drugs for pain. maybe nerve damage maybe not. HAVE U EVER EXPERIENCED SOMETHING LIKE THIS. Don't know what to do
