I finished my 6th and last chemo treatment on 8/4/09. I had the sandwich treatment with 3 chemo and the radiation therapy (both external and internal) and then 3 more chemo.
I had lab on 9/1 and the CA 125 was 18 (normal is below 35). I had lab drawn on 10/20 and the number was 39.9. I had had a colonoscopy earlier that day before the lab was drawn. I was hoping the colonoscopy made the number go up. I had the lab redrawn 10 days later and got the results today. It is 42.2.
I am back in Florida and following up with my gyn/onoc here. I have repeat lab and CT scheduled for 11/12 and see the doctor on 11/19. I am afraid I will need to go back on chemo. I was hoping for a break from treatment for a while. I have stage III-C UPSC. I had no symptoms when I was diagnosed. It certainly is not the news I wanted to hear.
I'll just have to wait and see what the doctor here recommends. In the mean time I am enjoying each day. In peace and caring.
