I had a 14cm high grade ovarian tumour removed in September along with radical hysterectomy. Outcome was stage 1. Very lucky I know.
I opted for 6 cycles of carboplatin to optimise my chances. This has just finished. My oncologist has told me he doesn't intend to scan me or do CA125 test, so it's just watch and wait. During chemo CA125 was around 30, last one 34 which was slightly up on the previous one. I did not have a pre-treatment baseline done.
I am surprised and concerned not to have CA125 checked though his reason is that it makes little difference to survival rate and could increase number of treatment cycles for no benefit. Should I insist???
