Hi ladies. I hope you’re all as well as you can be.
My mum had a repeat of her ca125 and it’s gone up again. So in jan it was 10, May it was 15 and now it’s 18. Upward trend.
My mum finished 1st line treatment in July 2019. Was diagnosed with HGS stage 3A in Jan 2019.
My mum feels well, with only a slight discomfort that’s getting better in her abdomen.
My question is, I’ve read ca125 can fluctuate for various reasons, but those reasons appear to be for women that have their reproductive organs. So for example, it can’t be fibroids etc causing this rise, because she doesn’t have a uterus.
What reasons, post surgery, can the levels rise that aren’t cancer?
Thank you in advance.
From an overly anxious daughter to a wonderful mum.
