Had a very nice and long , hour and a half visit with my doc. We went over a multitude of things.
Most of my lab values were really good. Still have low white count but not drastic.
he was concerned about me being dehydrated and that it is now showing up in my labs. I promised to try and drink more water and do what ever I can to avoid getting iv fluids.
The ca 125 is still trending up, although it's in small amounts. Not doubling, just continued rising. So I'll be getting a ct scan from neck to thighs. The doc wants to also check on the status of the lung nodules and the one in my neck.
Also will be getting an ultrasound of neck to see if there are any changes with the thy ca or if things look stable.
He suggested an endoscopy, but I declined till I have more info from the ct and ultrasound. We'll see..
My energy is slowly improving, and some of the lack of energy must be from the dehydration.
I will be heading back to FL in mid May, hopefully with a bit more bounch in my step.
I am trying to stay positive about the ca 125, but given the continued pain and the slow increase, it's in my thoughts a bit more than usual.
I'll keep you posted on the results of the upcoming scans.
Also, doc is setting in motion the BRCA testing. I know many of you have had this, I think it can only help to know. Whatever the outcome is, I would feel better with the knowledge.
