I had another bloodtest today and had them toss in a CA125 cancer marker test, since it has been just shy of two months since my last chemo and I have these thyroid nodules to be investigated now.
My CA125 number has been 5 since August after radiation, and remained 5 after chemos 4/5/6.
The rest of my blood counts are coming back up finally.
Since I am being referred to a thyroid surgeon for evaluation of my thyroid nodules I also asked that they toss in a thyroid panel for the blood work. So far those tests came back normal today I was told. The cancer marker test for the thyroid is not back yet-they send that one offsite to run-so they don't have that result yet. I understand like uterine cancer, there is a cancer marker blood test for thyroid-a protein elevates with cancer for that as well. So far my appointment with thryoid surgeon for evaluation is not until end of January. That doctor is on vacation so I have asked my gyno-oncology team to try to obtain an earlier appointment for me with this doctor when he returns.
Any feedback on CA125 and small variances after chemo, and also thyroid is appreciated.
Hugs to all.
