4years-no remission

I was diagnosed 1/99 stage3C Grade 3. Hysterectomy followed by Taxol/Carb -Doxil -Hycamtin - Thalidomide - Xeloda. CA125 has never been near an acceptable level, but CTscans are all clear except for a 2 cm mass on left adrenal gland. Every Dr. felt it was not cancer related. After more than 4 years without getting my CA125 down, I did go through 25 radiation tretments to the adrenal mass. CA125 continues to rise and is now at 933. Anyone had a similiar situation? I have been off chemo for the last nine months as nothing works for very long and yet my CTscans are clear! Any ideas?

It is my impression that CA125 numbers aren't reliable--you can have high ones without cancer, and low ones with cancer. It must be awfully worrying.
