Hello ladies, my story so far, stage 3a borderline disease November 2012, full debulking with no further treatment and up until a year ago I was fine. Since then loads of stress with redundancy and a job with a spiteful office manager who made my life hell. That was when I started to develop IBS type symptoms, Ca125 also crept up to 77. I became very poorly with the IBS and made the decision to resign because my self esteem plummeted. I was so angry because I felt I had coped with everything else that had been thrown at me so well, but for some reason I couldn't cope with this horrible person. I had a few weeks off work to lick my wounds and my CA125 went down. Eventually I picked myself up and got myself another job. It was working for someone who has got a reputation for being a bit of a bi-ch but I took it because I needed to prove something to myself. Anyway , sorry I'm waffling, I will get to the point eventually, nearly five months late, I'm still there and loving it. My new boss and I get on really well and my self esteem is back where it should be. However, CA125 Keeps going up and down. I had a CT scan a month ago and very slight change near the diaghrafam so scan is going to be repeated in four months time. Im Ok with this as My Consultant knows what he's doing but my IBS has flared up again. I'm taking Medication for this which helps, but I've really been struggling this week. Even my boss commented at work yesterday at how tired I'm looking. I'm certain my IBS has flared up again because of the stress of waiting for scan results, but mentally I've accepted that nothing will be done for four months, so how come my body is stressing over it. I'm such a positive, happy person and I don't get it. Sorry to waffle on ladies, love Kerry
