To Catch you up....mom who's 62 had her debulking after three rounds chemo. Her ca125 was 86,000 when they found the cancer. It went from that to 10 after the chemo. Now, post surgery they did one chemo and did not give her the number.Than the following friday they gave her just the taxol instead of the carbo/taxol cocktail. Now this past friday they said no to her getting the treatmernt cuz of her bloodwork comin out low on a few things. So she finally asked her ca125 and they said it was higher by a little. Like from 10 to 24. If they are measuring the tumor activity than this would mean it is already growing. The nurse once again says well the next chemo it will be more accurate. I swear everytime it;s a bad number they say it's not accurate to make u feel safe. I need honesty people.
