6/29/18 update - my number increased to 51.2 on 6/12 and my oncologist put me on Armidex which is supposed to slow down the production of cancer cells. On 6/24 I became ill with fever, aches, cold and cough and saw the doctor again. They said it’s just a bad cold but did my blood work while I was there. My CA125 is now 100.6. This is higher then when I was first diagnosed. I am going for another PET scan on 7/12/18 and even more scared. I’m trying to convince myself that the number jumped that much because I’m sick but that doesn’t change the fact that it’s still increasing.
I was diagnosed with ovarian cancer Stage 2C in November 2016 at the age of 65. I had a complete hysterectomy and followed with Chemo for 5 months. At the time of my diagnosis my CA125 was only 94. After the surgery it was 40 and during chemo and up until November 2017 it was between 10 and 11. In November it rose to 15, then February to 21, March to 25. My oncologist wanted to keep an eye on it so on May 15th it went to 39.4. CT scans come out clear but a follow up CA125 test on May 27th had a result of 45.3. I’m really scared but trying to remain calm. Just looking for some positive thoughts. Also I should say that prior to being diagnosed I had no symptoms and felt well. I still have no symptoms and feel well.
