    Drug or Chemo Therapy

    I have stage 4 of colorectal cancer. My doctor told me my cancer was inoperable. I have been receiving chemotherapy at my doctor's office since June 30, 2011. I go every 2 weeks. My CEA levels were 8,000+ at the time of diagnosis in early May. Since then, my CEA levels have gradually decreased but they are still high. I do not like my doctor. I feel like he does not take the time to answer my questions thoroughly. I regret not doing more research and finding the best doctor before starting my treatment. Now, i have to wait until my treatment ends to do another CT scan so i can make an appt with Sloan-Kettering. I hope the doctors there can improve my situation.
