I had my pre chemo blood tests and all came back great except for 1 high CA 125 level. For some reason, there wasn't a level taken in the hospital prior to surgery. I was a little shook up to see the CA 125 was 208. The nurse manager at my Doc's office said that it was possible that pre surgery it could have been in the thousands. It just seems to me this is snowballing, before surgery I was told just one superficial tumor in the uterus, won't even need chemo. Lo and behold, one surprise tumor in the right ovary, chemo and radiation. Then path results showed no lymph gland involvement, so no radiation. If my level is 208 I guess they didn't get it all out with the hysterectomy. Must have more of the nasty little buggers floating around somewhere. Anyone have any input,or similar experiences? Thanks for listening to me moan and groan....
