Well today I saw my consultant after a rise in my ca125 last month from 11 to 29. I was having bowel issues as well, I have a Stoma after a perforation during chemo last year. My abdomen is still swollen but the consultant was happy it’s bowel problems, inflammation and not cancer related. Ca125 has dropped from 29 to 22 so going in the right direction. Stoma is working ok with laxatives been given softeners as well. Also saw the dietician and now have a much better knowledge of foods that my irritate it. I have a history of chronic IBS, my sister has ulcerative colitis, and my mum also had diverticulitis with a burst when she was in her early 50’s. I feel very relieved tonight. I have a ct scan within the next month and a follow up in 6 weeks with more bloods to see what’s going on.
Thanks to everyone who replied to my initial posting when I was in a state of panic.
I’m celebrating with a glass of red tonight - not sure if that was in the dietitians book!!!
