Hello to all!
For the last few weeks there has been some question as to whether I’m having a recurrence - my CA125 has been rising since August last year and is now around 400 - it went up 100 over four weeks between appointments. I had a scan which showed some tumour growth and a small amount of ascites. Two weeks ago my consultant suggested that there was a possibility I would need to start on second line chemo - Carbo/Caelyx, however, she wanted the scan to be re-reported by a gynae specialist radiographer and reviewed by the MDT. I went today, armed with a calendar of all the things I’ve arranged this year in the hope that chemo could be fitted in around my life, only to be told that my tumours have barely increased, one has actually shrunk, albeit only 1 millimetre! Four weeks until my next appointment and another three months until my next scan as long as I feel ok. I do have quite a lot of abdominal discomfort, but I’m fairly sure it’s still after effects from my operation.
I have also mostly been on holiday! A second honeymoon in Paris - mostly charging about from one architectural monument to another, just like 36 years ago and a few days in Wales including a yomp up the Great Orme (no cable car or tram for us - straight up the mountain goat path!) and a sailing trip out of Conwy in the fog!!
I know some of you are really going through the mill at the moment and although I’ve not really posted or commented for a while, I have read all posts and keep you all in my thoughts.
Love to you all, Ali xx
