Diagnosed with Stage 3 bowel cancer end of May 2021 underwent a right hemi colectomy and small bowel resection on 5th July, no stoma. Started 'mop up chemo' CAPOX in August. CEA levels continued to be high so was kept on with oncology. Have had CT, PET, MRI scan and further colonoscopy since finishing chemo. Ive been told there is no cancer recurrence but there is an area of inflammation were my bowel was joined. CEA remains slightly over normal at 6.1 but have been put back for review with the surgeon (March 2022) then for the 5 year surveillance programme.
