I saw my surgeon today. It was 2 weeks from my surgery. It was great to get the staples out. Just a review, first diagnosed 3/2012 optimally debulked and did chemo dense treatment which ended October 2012. Low CA125 for 17 months, then started to rise until abnormal level in April 2014. Second surgery due to tumors found on CT PET scan. Second surgery May 13, 2014. Unable to ultimately debulk this time. Also had to repair bowel obstruction.
Why is it, even though I know about ovarian cancer and all of its risks, difficulties treating ect.... But still today was tough. He was not sure he could get me back into full remisssion again. My CA125 although elevated for me is still not representative of the disease he found with surgery. He was unable to ultimately debulk. Thus now I have to hope on the chemo reducing my tumors left. This was tough to hear today.
Hoping you all have some support to cheer me up.
I should start chemo within 10-14 days.
