Hi I haven't posted for a while but do read all the posts.Im in need of advice I have had in total 60 doses of chemo over 71\2 yrs and I cant have any more.The last chemo I was Etopside oral.I was admitted to hospital in December with sepsis and almost lost my life.Due to medical aid politics here in South Africa we were no longer allowed to see my original oncologist and had to change Drs.My new Dr has given me Tamoxifen she says it does work in stabilising o/c in about50% of women.I have a lot of mets to lungs and abdomen.I was asked if I want to stop treatment by my previous oncologist and I suppose lie down and die so I said no I want to carry on.
I lost about 21kg in weight which weakened me terribly.A funny thing happened I recovered and am eating well and fairly active.My CA125 was180 but in 3weeks ( without any treatment) it dropped to 36! Im very frightened of the outcome of this cancer as a nurse told me I was dying. That was before Christmas so now the seed of doubt is in my mind and I cant stop thinking about it 24hrs a day.Im sorry to be so morbid but can anyone explain the CA125 drop to me and has anyone been in my situation? Love and healing hugs to you all xx
