After a month on Tamoxifen my CA 125 has gone down from 115 to 67. I am so happy. I didn't expect good news so fast. My onc said it would take a while. I had an email from Kaiser and when I tried to check it last night I couldn't get to the site. I thought it was a reminder of my appointment on Thursday. I just checked and saw it was a lab result. I normally get the CA 125 results in the mail ten days after the blood draw; I can call the office but that makes me nervous. When I saw it was an email from my onc subject: lab test, I gulped. I really expected it to be higher than last time. I guess she knew I would want this good news fast.

This is a great way to start the weekend. I have company coming and need to do some things and bake a cake. Wow, I haven't had good news in a while. I am kind of stunned. I guess I was really steeling myself for more bad news.

Thank you for always being here in bad times and good.

Good for you!! What a relief. Does tamoxifen have bad side effects?

hot flashes, fatigue, lightheadedness, anxiety, rapid heartbeat and some difficulty staying asleep at night. Some mornings I feel groggy when I wake up. The most common so far is the fatigue and hot flashes.

If that's as bad as it gets, it really isn't bad at all.

What makes it even better is that it's such a big drop as you are getting closer to those magic NED numbers. ((((HUGS)))) Maria
