I hope you are all well.
I am hoping you can help me with a random question...
So when you are diagnosed with OC you (ususally) have high CA125. I get that and am aware of this.
My question is if you get a reoccurrence, e.g. in Stomach, Bowel, Liver etc. would your CA125 be raised like it was when it was first diagnosed? I know they still always call the cancer OC but after a hystorectomy, I was wondering if the symptoms for it being in other places remain similar re blood tests?
My mum is stage 4 NED currently and have been reading up symptoms to be aware of for reoccurance. I want to make sure that if it does come back we are hot to the mark and get her in with the Oncology team. Our GP is also at our every beck and call so was thinking we could always get a blood test done for CA125 if any symptoms arise that we are slightly worried about in the future, I then thought I wonder if CA125 is something that would happen if her Ovaries are no longer there. I might sound really silly asking this question, sorry if I do.
Thanks for your help once again.
p.s. I am also living in the mind that it will never come back, however I dont think ignorance is bliss when it comes to this as much as I wish I could be. We need as much information as possible so we can catch the b*stard before it has time to blink! xxx
