Hi all my dad had Whipple's in June 2018 followed by 6 cycles of chemo ( Gemcap) . After the chemo , his count of CA 19-9 was normal ( around 30) . After that we had a PET scan and again did CA 19-9 which showed readings of 50 but after 3 months , we recently did the test and it showed elevated readings of CA 19-9 (  nearly 1100) Though we feel it s quite strange that readings are higher as he feels healthy and had not any other symptoms of jaundice or weight loss . Also LFT test reports are normal . We have CT scan scheduled this weekend and have an appointment with oncologist , let's hope all is fine
