Hi. Ive just had a Colonoscopy as follow up because my CEA levels are slightly raised . I had my operation in March 2017 plus 4 rounds of Chemo. I had 10 inches of my Colon (right side ) taken away plus 7 inches of my stomach lining. where the tumour had bedded in.
Did this mean I actually had 2 tumours or can the tumour that was bedded in my stomach lining be one and the same i.e. the Colon. Also my CEA levels in June this year were 6 .3 Is this high ? Can the levels go down ?My scans have all been clear but this latest Colonoscopy 2 weeks ago revealed quiet a biggish polyp which the Doctor who was doing the Colonoscopy assured me it was not cancerous, but I am to go in for another Colonoscopy 4th January (Im going on holiday tomorrow) They did want me in before. They will do a biopsy on the polyp. How long will it be before i will get the results ? And my 1st Colonoscopy was excruciating I suppose with the tumour . The one I’ve just had was ok but why could they not have taken the polyp away instead of another Colonoscopy.
Thank You Lida B
