had my every 3 month blood work done for my medical oncologist visit today (breast cancer) and was ok with a slight rise in my ca125. It's the 4th rise in a row....4, 5.1,8,14, and now 17. The onc told me that my liver enzymes have been rising and he is concerned that with the rising ca125 that there might be mets to the liver. He advised that I get a scan ASAP. I almost fell off the chair. I had to go to chemo from there so called my PCP and gyn/onc. After they all conferred and looked at the blood work, it was agreed that I need a scan.
So, I am scheduled for the 23rd. My anxiety is so high I can hardly breathe. Does Ovarian metasticize to the liver without any symptoms (I feel good, no probs)? If it does, what are the treatments ....really, I'm just thinking if it's in the liver, I'm dead.
I am scared.....
Glad I have this forum to express my fears to all of you who understand all too well.
