I just returned from my post chemo follow-up with my doctor. I received the 'ALL CLEAR' according to the test results, blood tests and exam. CA125 is holding at 8. I hereby have a reprieve - no more chemo! I'm so happy, so is my family.
One thing did show up, however, on my CT scan - a blood clot in the vein that used to supply the ovary. It was clamped when I had my hysterectomy in 2000, and my doctor is puzzled as to why I have the clot now. Typically, it is common to occur not long after surgery. He has advised an aspirin per day and my follow-up CT in 3 months will also look to see if it is still there. Anyone else out there have this before?
May God bless all of you for your continued prayers, hugs and support. I know I will continue to walk this road with caution and eyes wide open. But I'm blessed that the Lord has sent so many wonderful people to hold my hand along the way. Until later. . .
Hugs and prayers forever.
