Well, I was normal for 3 weeks .. or so I thought! CA went up 8 points to 28 (with 21 being normal by my lab). I know 8 isn't much, but I never have huge #'s .. so 8 points in 3 weeks is considerable for me. I was extremely busy the week before the lab and am hoping that stress or some unknown other something, made the # jump and not the cancer. I can only hope!
Round 7 this week was to be my last as my onc honestly thought the # would go down and we would get a PET/CT at the end of the month. If all was clear on the scan, I would get a chemo break.
I am thinking I will stay on schedule with the chemo until I get at least two in the normal range .. then have the scan. So disappointing ................
