Just a quick update that my CA125 level was 7 in August. It has normally fluctuated in the past between 6 and 7, and so I am very happy with that. It is nearly 2 years since my last dose of chemo. Seeing oncologist in 10 days. Am still taking ibuprofen, which as many of you will know from my previous posts has an anti-cancer effect in some people, as does aspirin, which Cancer Research UK is finally doing a large trial into.
I strongly recommend anyone in full remission to try aspirin or ibuprofen or similar to try to prevent relapse. Please see my previous posts for more info. Do discuss it with your GP or oncologist before starting any of these, as these drugs can have side effects, and your GP/oncologist will know if you are suitable to take them. Certainly I recommend omeprazole or similar to protect the stomach.
As some of you may remember I am looking into other people on this website who are trying out aspirin, ibuprofen or another non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) like Naproxen for their anti-cancer effect. I did hear from quite a few people in February or so, and asked if they could give me an update on their condition in 6 months. If you are happy to give me an update, please get in touch, by personal message if you prefer.
All best wishes to everyone.
