I finished all my treatment including a course of Avastin in June 2013. I had been diagnosed 5/4/12 with stage 3c OC. I had a slight problem with the Avastin around treatment 15 so they stopped. I was and am fairly healthy as am a full time postie! After Christmas I started feeling not right with some bowel changes and some slight loss of weight despite not trying... I finally went back and just mentioned every thing at GP's who arranged a blood test as my CA125 had been a constant 17 during treatment and last taken. It came back at 52.. Back to consultant a little earlier than expected and had scan and another blood test 10 days later.... Now I am 77! Scan showed nothing, asked if it was the gallstones I apparently have and told no they hadn't grown moved or done anything! General opinion was to wait till June now for more tests and scans, I can't have scan with iodine as now allergic to it and as much as I try to make reasons as to other causes it won't go away! I now find I am getting stomach aches,that come and go and embarrassingly enough wind! I'm trying not to live with cancer and instead make it live with me and my plans but the niggle just won't go away, this has been going on for a month now, and just needed somewhere to get it of my chest... It is no good telling my husband my worries as he just works me up over questions I can't answer, then my son will end up hearing and we are already having problems and counselling for him as he isn't coping to well since all treatment over... I speak to the union bloke at work as he is really good and stands by me even with the managers who every so often gently try to say I shouldn't be there! I know it's business and I am covered by disability act but it is all helping to wear me down! So for a moan but I need that! I don't post on here often but read here regularly! Xx
