Intense pain

Postby newcopernicus » Tue Dec 03, 2019 1:47 pm

26 yo female here.I've had horrible abdominal pain.CA 19-9 is 98,CEA is normal.I'm having a CT tomorrow.Barium meal showed my stomach is bent,likely because of the tumor.I just really want to know,from your experience if there is any chance I can go through this without suffering this much.This is my biggest concern.
