So, my mom just had her 6th infusion of weekly carbo/taxol. She gets her blood drawn each time but our medical oncologist doesnt seem to always want to share the CA 125 number. Three weeks ago it was at 201, two weeks ago it was at 204, skipped last week and today he said it was still in the 240 range. I know this weekly carbo/taxol regimine is fairly new for this type of cancer, but I would love to hear from anyone that has had this type of roller coaster with their CA 125. I should also note that the doctor said that if it doesnt go down next week, we'll try something else- ugh so sad and frustrating!!
