Hi. I had sugery Dec. 2010 to remove a tumor Colon cancer, June
2011 they reconnect me, everything works but my CEA level (tumor
marker) keeps raising my doctors sent me to run some tests, pet-scan,
colonoscopy, they show no trace of cancer nevertheless my CEA is
high. Anyone out there have any comment or advice? During my
surgery on Dec. 16 2010 they remove ovaries, falopian tubes, uterus
and end up with a colostomy bag which as i said was remove. Please
any ideas why lmy CEA level keeps raising? could it be my diet?
I really need an insight. Thrank you for your time.

To get a better idea of the CEA - do a search here on Webmd
for CEA and it will give you a few things that affect results.
It also gives the normal and what it does not do.

Thank you 4 your response, I will search. Friday 27, when i got the call that my bloodwork results showed a raising CEA i got
scared and I cryed; my husband consoled me. I always go to
church on Saturdays, yesterday I did not wanted to go, but I
ended up getting my family together(my husband and our four
kids) attending the service. I can not loose faith.
Another problem I have is after the recover from the second
surgery(reconnected) small amount of stool comes out without
any effort is frustrating. Anyone has had experience that? does it has to do with the diet? am eating white rice, white bread, chicken, fish, the bad p
