I am a 3-year ovarian cancer survivor. Had a complete hysterectomy, removal of several lymph nodes and omentum; went thru 6 months of chemo treatments. CA 125 has been consistent between 10 and 19, with it being 20 one time last year. Recent CA125 was 20.1. I know this is not indicative of anything, but I have also since had some symptomology. For 5 days I have had lower abdominal pain (such as diarrheal cramps), and have had loose stools. I have tried Immodium (doctor's suggestion in case it's a virus) - no luck. Concerned about the discomfort. No blood in the stools. Can anyone relate to this and what could it be? I know this is vague - just looking for some comfort. Feel fine otherwise, just tired from a week of this. Thank you and God Bless you for your response!
