I am new to this forum and wanted to know reach out to those who have been dealing with this and know a little more. My mother is 60 years old diagnosed with Stage IIIC Ovarian Cancer. Prior to surgery her CA125 was 70.6, after surgeryon 6/14/13 she was down to 45.5 and then yesterday when they checked again before chemo she was at 40.1. She had her first round of treatment yesterday which was 3 hours of taxol and 1 hour of carboplatin. We are not able to discuss the initial PetScan results until 7/10/13 when we go back for the second round of chemo and her follow up. I guess my question is her CA125 seems to continue to drop, that is a good thing right? What happens after she gets in the normal range? Will they declare her in remission? Does she stop chemo? Just wondered if anyone could give me a little more info.
She was diagnosed in March/2013. She is definitely a fighter and is ready to beat this disease.
