Had CT scan on Thursday which was negative. CA19-9 was up to 33 from 9 in February. CEA 2.7 and all other blood work good.

Had blood done at another lab 2 weeks ago and ca19-9 was 7. I have a follow-up appointment with Dr. O'Reilly at Sloan. What questions should I ask her about difference in markers? Should I ask for a repeat scan? Last one was July 2013 since she moved me to yearly now.

I'm getting nervous and wondering if I should go back to scans every 6 months. Is this increase in value something to be worried about? Always something with this disease UH!
