CEA IS NOT ACCURATE ENOUGH.
HELLO AND WELCOME,
CEA levels are used post operatively to see for metastasis indication clues.
Levels are elevated in majority of the patients who have had metastasis.
HAVING SAID THAT ITS STILL NOT DIAGNOSTIC FOR EITHER METS OR RECURRENCE.
I would advise a repeat Colonoscopy
and PET scan to clear the picture about recurrence and METS both, meaning colposcopy
to detect recurrence and PET scan to see for any distant metastasis.
hope this helps.
let me know if there is a query if not plz close the discussion and rate my answer.
