Went to the doctor today. My CA 125 went from 79 to 161. I was going to be happy with anything less than 200. So I was happy. I know others worry with the slightest increase in their CA 125's, but when mine has gone up to 3200 I don't worry about 161. I know it is doubling, but I have no symptoms. I will go back in5 weeks for another lab test. All my other labs look good.
I have had lots of joint pain since I started the aromasin. The doctor says that is good, it means the medicine is blocking the estrogen. Hopefully it is slowing the cancer growth, too.
I still have nausea several times a week. The doctor says it is not from the chemo. He wanted to try an anti emetic medicine every day to prevent the nausea. I told him I would rather just take the compazine when I needed it. I don't like taking so much medicine.
Tom and I getting ready to go on a Baltic Sea cruise. Going to enjoy the time before I have to go on chemo again. Looking forward to the trip, but not the long plane ride to get over to Europe. Will wear my elastic socks and take my blood thinner shots and hope for the best.
Hope everyone is hanging in there and enjoying each day. In peace and caring.
