SOMEONE WITH LYNCH SYNDROME

MY WIFE HAD COLON CANCER TWO YEARS AGO AND SHE HAD SURGERY AND CHEMO. BUT WHILE SHE WAS DOING HER CHEMO WE FOUND OUT SHE HAD LYNCH SYNDROME. WELL NOW HER TUMOR MARKER IS GOING UP AND SHE IS HAVING SYMTOMS OF IT COMMING BACK. THE DR THINKS SHE HAS CANCER SOMEWHERE SO HE ORDERED A PETSCAN AND NOTHING SHOWED UP ON IT. HE SAID THAT IN JULY SHE WILL HAVE TO HAVE ANOTHER CEA (TUMOR MARKER) TEST DONE AND IF IT UP ANY MORE SHE IS GOING TO HAVE TO DO A CT SCAN AND PETSCAN AGAIN. SHE IS TIRED OF ALL THESE TEST AND HAVING TO TRAVEL ALL THE TIME TO GO DO THE TEST. IM WITH HER. IT DOES GET TO A PERSON AFTER A WHILE. THANKS FOR LETTING ME VENT. MY FAMILY KNOWS ABOUT EVERYTHING AND SO DOES HERS BUT ITS NOT THE SAME AS TALKING TO SOMEONE WHO IS GOING THRU OR HAS BEEN THRU WHAT YOU ARE AND IM GLAD TO FIND A PLACE FOR THAT NOW. THANK YOU
