STILL CLEAR : Good morning all, I thought long... - My Ovacome

Good morning all,

I thought long and hard about posting my update but decided to go ahead because I know how positive news can be uplifting. I recall a post a couple of years ago from a lady who was diagnosed with stage 4 of 20 years ago and has had no recurrence- I was low and feeling that time was not on my side at that point and her post really gave me hope.

My latest CA125 was 8 and yesterday my oncologist said my PET scan was clear. She is over the moon about it but still cautious. I thought she would leave it a year till my next appointment but no, a mammogram and blood test in January and then an appointment with her.

She was appalled that I’ve not had a mammogram for 5 years and wants to be sure because my tumour was BRCA positive although I am not.

So it’s onward and upwards for me.

Things are less positive for my poor husband who has had three rounds of chemo and had to have the latest round halted because he has shingles and the side effects were so difficult for him to tolerate. His cancer had grown 20% whilst on the second chemo so we are worried. He has a scan later today and a consultation with his oncologist next week so we’re keeping everything crossed.

Have a good day and weekend everyone.

Joy 😘

What a lovely, positive letter to give others hope . I'm so sad about your husband, though. I do hope he can start his Chemo again soon, or they'll try something different for him. How sad that you should both have cancer!

Sending love and all the luck in the world for both of you.
