My wife just had her biannual checkup at the oncologist. Her CEA is slightly higher at 1.8 but still within the normal range. Her CEA from a year ago was 1.3. They now do not consider imaging diagnostics necessary since markers have been good for 2 years now. Her last PET scan was in September of 2012 which was negative. The oncologist indicated that the chance of recurrence at this point is very low. Most colon cancers return after the first three years. We praise God for being with us through our journey. I admire her for her discipline.
