Hi ladies

Tomorrow after work I go for a ca125 test for my 3 month ck up on Friday. This is the first time I have been sick before a test. I have a slight head cold but I also have had some sort of stomach bug the past couple days. No big surprise since I work in a high school health office and both of these were going around prior to the break.

What I am wondering is - can either of these raise my CA level? I was just wondering so if in fact they call me thursday and say it is up I don't flip out and assume it is the cancer.

Until my cold and and tummy bug I have felt great. A little tired from all the last minute holiday preprun around but over that now.

Any advice would be appreciated.<*** src="/sites/all/libraries/tinymce/jscripts/tiny_mce/plugins/emotions/***/smiley-smile****" alt="Smile" title="Smile" border="0" />

ANYTHING can make that ca125 go up(or down).  If its a few points,no biggie, if it doubles.....maybe a problem.  Your nerves and anxiety can make it go haywire.  Try to relax and don't get all bent out of shape if it is up.  Best, Debrajo<*** src="/sites/all/libraries/tinymce/jscripts/tiny_mce/plugins/emotions/***/smiley-laughing****" alt="Laughing" title="Laughing" border="0" />

Thanks Debra Jo.  This is my first real follow up.  My first check was combined with surgery follow up after having my I P port removed.

Could you postpone it a week or so? That way your bugs will be gone.
