Went for my 1 year 3 month. check up at MD Anderson. CA 125 is up from a steady 21 to 41. Doctor was concerned. Asked me what I wanted to do. Wait and do another CA 125 or have a CT scan to rule out any problems. It has been a year since my last CT scan. Pelvic exam was negative. I opted for the CT scan on May 17. To make matters worse this board was down for most of the night. I am afraid and nervous. Hubby is not worried. I have no symptoms. Energy is great. Appetite is huge. I feel wonderful except for the gnawing in my nervous stomach.
The nurse praticioner said that since my last CA 125 in Jan. MD Anderson changed their test and there have been several high results for patients. I am hoping and praying for NED results again. Hubby said I am worrying too much. I am anxious for the results on Wed from the CT Scan.
I think I am more worried than when I was first diagnosed. Silly I know.
You guys are an inspiration to me. I know I can do this whatever the results. More chemo, sure...bring it on. I want to have as much time as possible.
I think the waiting is the worst part.
