In the last 10 weeks my CA 125 went from 554 to 672. I was going to be happy if it was less than 700, so I was very happy. As before I have no symtoms and feel good. I have joint pains from the Aromasin, but I can deal with that. i also continue my daily blood thinner shots.
My onocologist in Florida said he would not do a CAT scan unless the CA 125 jumped significantly. My Illinois onocologist wants to do one because he says the cancer can change. Even though my marker was 1700 before the second time I needed chemo, and 3200 before I needed chemo the third time. He says he would recommed the CAT scan just to be sure the cancer is still being contained.
I do not respond the same way other people do with all myalleriges and how I respond to the chemo, he highly recommended the CAT scan. So I will have a CAT scan before I see him in 7 weeks. All other labs remain good.
Knowing how quickly Mary Ann progressed, I don't want any surprises. Mary Ann. Linda and I were all diagnosed about the same time and all were staged at 3-C. I don't know why I am still "living large" and they lost their couragest fight. I am thankful for everyday, and pray for all those who are on this journey with me. In peace and caring.
