I had a hysterectomy 7 weeks ago and am waiting to hear when chemo is going to start, I saw my GP this afternoon and asked for the results of my CA125 (taken last week)
They are 406 now, having been 203 before I had surgery. How can that be? I may be naive, but had presumed that if "all visible signs of cancer" had been removed, the CA125 would fall. Now I am worried that a load of cells were released during surgery and are now rushing round my system and setting up colonies.
I know I am sounding overly dramatic, but I live on my own and have come home and just want to sit and cry. Thank heavens I have you ladies to talk to.
