Hi I am new to this site so apologies in advance for long post. I had stage 1c ovarian cancer and was operated on I. May when they removed three large masses, this was gollowed in June with full hysterectomy, both ovaries removed, appendectomy and two sets of lymph nodes. They took biopsies from my one gum which came back clear. I had six cycles of chemo Carboplatin and had CT scan pre Christmas and was assuming my meeting with my oncologist today I would be given the all clear. Unfortunately he gave me the news that my bloods came back at 67 which is higher than pre first surgery which had been 54. I am floored. He is referring me for a PET Sscan and started talking about radiotherapy, chemo and possible surgery etc. I want it to be a false positive but even though bloods can be wrong I felt he was assuming the worst when I want to put this behind me and get on with my life. I am 43 and have two young children aged 4 and 2 and about to get divorced!
Should I go to my GP and get a pee test to check not a urine infection? Had Ui previously as bladder difficult to empty post surgery. Any other infections that can push up blood count markers?
Many thanks in advance ladies
