  • Difficult and worrying time for you.Answers only when your Doc returns from holiday, could you not see someone else?

    Once these health issues start we never really have peace of mind, but in the interim days when we feel good, have to focus on the positive and good aspects of our life.

    Hope all goes well for you xxx

  • Hi, I guess it's no use, telling you not to worry

  • By this time you have had the scan and I hope all goes well, they might wait and rescan in a few months if 125 is okay or they could decide to treat you while you are clinically well. I suppose you wait and see until the end of the month, in the meantime try and enjoy the good days and give yourself a treat because you are worth it

  • Sure hope your doctor is a gyn/oncologist. Makes a huge difference due to their training and experience. Any time you are feeling unsure, get a second opinion. Meres arch as much as you can. These forums are great. Have you tried inspire.com. You are your best advocate!

  • Research as much as you can. (Sorry!)

  • All I can offer to you is that my onc has always claimed that the CA 125 has to be elevated AS WELL as having a positive scan. He also has said that the only real definitive diagnosis comes from biopsy results. Most of us on this post have already had the diagnosis of OC. After the first initial diagnosis the physicians will use the scans and can tell if it has reoccurred.

    I don't know if this is helpful to you. Your scan has been completed by now and I hope you feel better while you wait for your results.

    The very best to you.
