Went to the doctor this week. My CA 125 went from 905 to 1441. I was hoping for less than 1200. I continue to feel good and have no symptoms. The doctor was not concerned about the number. He said he has seen the number go to 100,000 on some people before they need treatment. He talked about when the number doubles, that is a concern. So my number doubled in the last 7 months. He was not concerned about it.
It will be a year in July since I had my last CAT scan. So the plan is the repeat the CAT scan and the lab tests the middle of July. That is the longest I have ever gone without a scan since my diagnosis. This will be scan number 20 for me. In the meantime we are going to go on our Norway Cruise and enjoy the trip. We will fly into Amsterdam and spend a few days there before and after the cruise. The pictures of the fjords on the internet look beautiful. I am looking forward to the trip very much.
Been working in my garden and enjoying that very much. The spring flowers have been beautiful. I enjoy seeing what new is blooming every day. Although it is still Spring it feels very much like summer here in Illinois.
Hope you all are doing well. In peace and caring.
