Well after thinking that the CA125 marker was not a good one for me, or not even something that my doctor considered as a tool, I found out today at my Dr appt that but she, my doctor has been using it all along.
Though they never got a number before my surgery thinking I had leiomyosarcoma, they have been monitoring it during all my chemo treatments and its been in the normal range, the last reading was 12.
I have mixed feelings about it. I don't want to be a slave to the numbers but its nice to know that I have some way to monitor any cancer progression other then just getting a scan.
Guess it pays not to make assumptions and actually ask your doctor about things. She didn't even tell me about it, I just saw CA125 - 12 written in the notes she was taking. I think she was surprised I knew so much about it.
