Hi everyone. I hope you are all coping okay and feeling well.
Could I ask a quick question re monitoring progress after chemo has finished?
I had three cycles of chemo and Avastin, my op, then picked up the chemo and Avastin for another three cycles. My CA125 went down after the first treatment from 593 to 120 and after the third was in the normal range. It is now 16. I was told my op went very well and all the visible cancer was removed.
I finished the chemo on 5 October and am now just having Avastin. I went for my first Avastin only treatment today and was told that I didn't need blood tests for four months and I wouldn't have a CT scan either. I wondered if this was the standard - I am feeling a bit abandoned and worried things may be happen and not be noticed!
