I'm a breast cancer survivor, so I know what it feels like to be given the cancer diagnosis, but I'm 58, and somehow that makes it slightly more acceptable that a 24 year old friend of my daughter. She has just come out of hospital for removal of her ovaries and has been told that she has had an omentumectomy, her CA125 is apparently too high, and her mum died of ovarian cancer. Sadly she is 9 months down the line from her first appointment whilst I was in hospital having surgery 3 weeks after I took my lump to my GP.. So that I can help her, please can someone tell me firstly what is a normal level for a CA125 test, what is the significance of an omentumectomy, and what questions should she be asking at this point? she is even scared of the sight of her own blood and is in desperate need of an advocate, please help me to help her? thank you lovely ladies xx
