I would dig further as far as the continued rise in the CA19-9. It is an indication of something going on. It is a steady rise in that number that you want to watch. While true ,inflamation and infection or Pancreatitis can elevate that number ,I would be concerned of a steady rise. Better to air on the side of caution and take action than to play the waiting game. I pray that this proves to be something else. Best of luck, Kim
