I had a whipple procedure in November of 2017, followed by a round of Gemzar and a round of radiation. Scans every three months, everything clear and my CA=19.9 was in the 9 - 11 range. This past scan, my CA-19.9 went up to 39 (which is only two over the max, but is kinda high for me) and the radiologist saw 'something that hadn't been on the last scan' on my liver. My surgeon said he didn't know, might just be where the contrast solution was draining out of my liver but I'm having a biopsy on Wednesday. It must not have been too obvious, as my surgeon had a look at those same scans and didn't see anything. Anyway - I have no doubt it's something bad. Of course it is - why wouldn't it be? Wondering how high y'all's CA-19.9 had been? I hear numbers in the hundreds, even thousands. Mine never was above 55. Just wondering. Have had multiple crying spells today. Hard to function. Scared to death.
