This is now my fourth year on ovacome and I am sad to read about the passing away of familiar names.
A couple of months ago I moved up to East Lancashire I love it up here the landscape is striking. I have also decided to move my care over here as well and at my last appointment at The Christie I asked them to refer me to a local consultant. I have had a copy of the referral.
Just a bit of a recap I finished second line treatment this time last year but my CA125 has been slowly rising since then but I have been feeling well and doing lots of lovely things. I had a CT scan at the beginning of December which showed some minor changes on the omentum or what remains of it. My latest CA125 is now 1095 and over the Christmas period I have been getting some familiar symptoms but I am reluctant to start treatment because of the impact on my quality of life.
My original tumour was tested for progesterone and estrogen receptors and has a lot so my next treatment option is likely to be letrazole. I have read that exercise can help with some of the side effects so I hope to keep running although now it is more plodding through treatment. I would really like to get my 100 Parkrun t shirt this year I am due to do number 70 this morning.
