I wonder if anyone has had this happen to them. I have been NED since January, 2010. Had Stage 2C with a hysyterctomy and six months of chemo in August, 2009. Have been doing real well until recently. I went into the hospital with what I thought was a gallbladder attack, however, the Drs. were not sure if it was a partial bowel blockage or the gallbladder. Anyway, after two days with an NG tube it did straighten itself out but needed gallbladder surgery so I had that about a month ago and then, lucky me, had to have oral surgery a week later. (I'm tired of giving away body parts!) I had my scheduled checkup with by gyn/onc the first week of Jan and my CA 125 has doubled. It usually runs 4 or 6 but has gone up to 12. He wants to check it again in a month. Has anyone experienced this? My gyn/onc said that after surgery the CA 125 may go up a little. Let me know what if anyone has had this experience. I know I will worry for the next month. Thanks!
