Looks like I've got another 6-month reprieve, after receiving good news last week from my oncologist at my 6-month checkup. My CA125 which is a very reliable marker for me, still very consistent since completion of treatments 3 years ago (2009) ---- 5. Had a few what I thought were "symptoms" which went away a few days prior to appt.....thank God! Apparently my new exercise regime flared up my muscles causing pain...but boy was I visualizing "recurrence". Funny how our minds go to the black side of life.
Been having lower-back/sciatica pain on/off for quite a while, as convinced my doc to do an MRI. This will help guide me in the proper direction for a specialist. As well this pain has calmed down too...gee! After all the chemo and 33 rounds of external pelvic radiation, no wonder my arthritis has flared up and who know what else.
Hugs to all of my sisters here, you've all been here to listen and guide me, as well, hope I can continue to support you all....
Enjoy life, it has an expiration~
