Hello to you all here in a group that I can finally relate to. I am so upset that Uterine and Endometrial cancers are not researched as much as they should be. When I got dx in 2007 I looked online to see what the chances were for me to be a survivor and what was offered. I was so disappointed at the results but now I am so happy to have found this site. Thank you.
The other day my doctor and I were going over my blood counts and the subject of the CA 125 came up and he told me that this test is not a good indicator that the treatments are working or not working or if there are new tumors. Has anyone else heard of this? My CA 125 has always been like from 5 to 8 and not any higher. I have mets to the lungs now and I just had my 5th treatment with both booster shots. I have to wait until the 6th one is over before I can get the CT scan done to see how things are. Anyone else have mets to the lungs?
Living with hope,
