Ladies, for all of you out there who have had to deal with this, how did you find the cancer had reoccurred? I was fortunate to find my UPSC early at Stage 1A, but every now and then those little thoughts will creep in to my head and I have no idea what I should be looking for. I get the blood draw for CA125 and the physical exam. (I am still on the quarterly rotation). I don't get CT's, only a total of 3 (one pre-surgery, one pre-radiation planning, one post treatment). Honestly I think I have bored my gyn/onc.
So I ask my warrior sisters:
How did you know or find out you had a recurrence? CTs? Lumps? Bumps? CA125 (which we know is really not a good indicator)?
I know I am not the only one out here, I have read some of the other women's stories.
Thank you in advance for all you share. I never would have made it through without all of you. No one else understands this journey better than you.
