Went to the doctor today. My ca 125went from 344 to 1140 !!!!!!!! Because I am feeling good and have no symptoms, and the CAT scan 6 weeks was okay I will remain in observation. Hooray. I will have a repeat lab and CAT scan the middle of January. Because it will more than 6 months since my last chemo I can go back on taxol/cisplatin. When that no longer works,we'll talk about what will be next.
By waiting my body can continue to recover from the last sessions of chemo. I asked about the " film" spreading in the abdomen. He said " yes" it does happen. He said eventually it would show on the CAT scan, or cause symptoms. He said unfortunately the symptoms of recurrence are "no symptoms".
So far the next 6 weeks I will "live large" and enjoy each day. My husband and I are going on a15 day cruise through the Panama Canal leaving Dec 6.
All of my "sisters" on this board remain in my prayers. In peace and caring.
