Weird CA-125 stuff

Hi Ladies,

My CA-125 in May was 9. A lymph node lit up on the pet scan. A needle biopsy confirmed cancer. When it was surgically removed in July it was confirmed to be ovarian. After one round of cistplatin/taxol it was 50.3 at the end of August. End of September it was 31.9. Obviously it fell, but I'm really scared since I had a recurrence with a normal ca-125. I will have scans the end of this month. I just took round 3 yesterday. Has anyone else experienced this?

This had not happened to me but I think there is another test they have to monitor your ca125 levels. Someone else will probably come along who knows about the other blood test.Good luck.

The other test is the HE4 test. Unfortunatly, it is not uncommon for the CA-125 not to become elevated with a recurrance to the lymph nodes. This other test might be a better indicator for that.
