My CA-125 count was 4788 when I started Chemo. It is now at 12920 after 2 chemo treatments. I went ahead and had a 3rd treatment. My oncologist was pleased because the tumor is shrinking after 1 treatment. He said that I was responding to the chemo great. I feel good other than when I have the treatments. He is at a loss as to why the numbers are going up instead of down unless it's because the tumor was really large. He has ordered a CT scan before the next treatment. He & I were both ready for surgery. Has this happened to anybody ?
