I haven't posted a message in quite sometime but come to this site almost everyday. Everyone on here is so wonderful- My dad was diagnosed on 10-3-02 and has been doing pretty well. His ca19-9 at dx was 2255 and is now 258- He has gained back all his weight (193!!) and sleeps all night. He is receiving Gemzar and had a ct scan on 2-27-03; So now we are hoping for some great news. He was told his tumor was inoperable due to vein involvement and was 6cm- So this ct scan will show how much the tumor has shrunk so far. He really only complains about burning in his stomach and his back pain is a lot less- Has anyone ever heard of a ca27-29? He had that done the day of his ct scan, everything I found on it is related to breast cancer- Any insights? God Bless All of You and everyone of you are in my prayers- Thank you for this womderful site-
