Rising CEA levels after completion of chemo and surgery
Hi, I underwent gastrectomy for gastric adenocarcinoma, my team thought it was T1 but upgraded to T3a post op with 5/27 lymph nodes positive.
I received 8 cycles of FLOT and underwent a recent normal CT chest abdomen and pelvis as well as normal EGD
However my CEA has trended upwards and I am scheduled for a repeat colonoscopy to look for another primary
I was going to ask my oncologist to order a PET scan.
Any thoughts on rising CEA levels please
