Hi Everyone, I hope you are all doing O.K. I have not been on in a while, it seems like when I get the chance the board is always too busy and I can't get on. Anyway I am on now, and I do have yet another question, my friend had a CA19-9 test on Jan. 26, it came back with a count of 500. Since then he has recieved 5 weeks of radiation and 6 infusions of 5FU, along with it.But the last CA19-9 test done mid-March came back elevated to 670. I thought the radiation and chemo was supposed to lower it. Does it mean that it did not work for him? Any info I will truly appreciate. Love to you all, and I hope I can get on more often. Cindy
