Just to let you know that my CA125 result was 5 just over 2 weeks ago. Unbelievable. CA125 is a good marker for my disease. Saw my consultant last week, and she has said not to come back for 6 months, even though I suggested 4 months! My last chemo dose was on 7th November 2014. See my previous posts for the full story.
Basically I was diagnosed in Sept 2009, and had surgery and chemo, with full remission, then relapsed Oct 2010 and had further course of chemo, with full remission, then went on ibuprofen as anti-cancer agent (like aspirin) to prevent recurrence (my idea, with support from my GP). Relapsed in 2014 after having been off ibuprofen in 2013 for 10.5 weeks. Had chemo in 2014 and again full remission. Back on ibuprofen and no further relapse. I don't get CT scans as CA125 is good marker for my disease. I am fully fit, playing tennis, hillwalking, etc.
I feel this is amazing. I think full clinical remission is needed, from my experience, to prevent recurrence of the cancer, as ibuprofen is only a weak anti-cancer agent, it appears. See my previous posts for all the evidence re aspirin and ibuprofen and similar anti-inflammatories like Naproxen. My case has not been written up at all, I suspect because I haven't survived long enough in my consultant's opinion. She keeps saying there could be some other reason for my good health, rather than ibuprofen, ie no proof it is ibuprofen that is the cause. It seems fairly obvious to me that ibuprofen is the cause of my good fortune, but oncologists seem to be a very cautious breed.
Anyway thought would let you know how I am doing, and let anyone new to the site know about ibuprofen and me!
All best wishes to you all.
