Went to see my oncologist this morning for a regular check up. I told him about some pain I've been having for the past 2 weeks in my lower left pelvic area. I'm in remission for 9 months and on Avastin clinical trial right now for maintenance; I have all sorts of pains everywhere, so I thought it was related to that. But, upon pelvic exam he said there was "something", a "fullness", a "mass". What? How could this be, my ca-125 taken last week was 8! He said that this test is not always reliable for all patients and they will need to do a ct scan to get a better look as to what this is exactly.
Ugh! Don't tell me it's back already! Has anyone experienced or heard of a recurrence with a normal ca-125? I've been looking online and I've read other blogs and discussion boards of ladies that have had this happen.
I pray it's not back already. Any information would be so helpful.
Thank you Teal Sisters!
