Does anyone out there know what one would look for in terms of symptoms to know if the cancer has returned? Had totally hysterctomy, omentum, lymph node removal in 2000, found stage 1C ovarian, 6 months of chemo. So far I'm cancer free but have experienced some abdominal discomfort. Also have a little discomfort in the glands around my neck, yet no swelling. My doctor told me that because the ovary ruptured during removal, he would be concerned about peritoneal cancer. Any particular symptomology on that? I'm headed for a CT and chest x-ray next week, as well as bloodwork which I get monthly. CA125 is usually 14-17, but has been 20 that last few months, which I know is still in the normal range.
Would really appreciate any insight on this. Thank you so much!
