Another three month checkup - good news

So I have been worrying that the pain in my side might have been sinister, turns out that my CA125 is fine, still below 3, bloods are all fine and Olaparib trial going well, 3 years 5 months in remission this time. The pains? well that turned out to be either damaged ligaments between the ribs or cracked ribs from either a sneeze or a cough from a cold I had recently! A few weeks of pain is better than the alternative !

Hi Kathy

Fantastic ! Not the pain but the ordinary reason behind it. It reminds me of a few months back when I had severe back pain a week after chemo. Turned out to be slipped disc. I must have been the happiest person in the world with a slipped disc ! We women can endure anything provided it's not the dreaded monster. Keep on smiling. Take care

Great news and a good start for the new year!!!! It is so easy for our minds to run to a bad conclusion with every ache and pain we get. Considering the alternative a cracked ribs is just fine.

Great inspiration to us all to be in remission that long.

I'm OK right now. NED 7+months and praying it lasts. I work hard to push the worry away. I have a profound sense of urgency driving me to get as much done as I possibly can every single day. I am grateful to be here.

Glad to hear you are doing well. Try to lose the worry, worrying won't change a thing and you will just be wasting time. Not sure what you are rushing round trying to get done but once and a while feed your soul, stop and smell the roses, admire the blue sky on a sunny day or just watch the rain fall, savour each day and the fact that you are still here and take it for what it is the 'present'. That housework will still be there later, the ironing will still be there . I sometimes sit and just people watch and wonder if any of them are going through what we are. Good grief that sounds like I'm preaching and I really don't mean to because it took me a while to reach where I am now in terms of letting things go (bit of a control freak), so I don't now hoover every day etc, does it matter? I don't think it does ...... Kathy xxx
