I would definitely see your doctor for the spotting. That is a flag I think that needs to be examined. It could be nothing but I would definitely less your medical team know this is happening as soon as possible.

I know whenever I go for follow up they will ask if there is any bleeding or spotting.

What is your CA125 number?

Peace and healing to you,

I agree that you need to let your oncologist know about the spotting. Such an occurrence should always be checked out! It could just be an irritation at the vaginal cuff where they removed the cervix....but woud be good to ask about it.

I am not sure I am understanding your numbers on the CA 125..did you mean to have those periods in the numbers? Am thinking I am misunderstandinng as it did not seem like a big jump.

If you are having such discomfort with sex I suggest you need to chat with your oncologist about this too. Did you have radiation? Your Dr. may suggest that you use a dilator so you can get things stretched out again.

Please keep us posted on what is happening....there are lots of women here with great suggestions along with wonderful support! You have had a lot happening in your life!!
