Oh, you fiendish CA-125 tests! I know there's lots of posts about this, but I'm stewing about this issue as well. It's such an emotional battle; cognitively I know it's within normal limits, but that doesn't completely help the panic about it. My CA-125 just doubled from 9 last month to 18, this month. I'll see my oncologist (in person! Yeah!) on Tuesday. Its been 14 months since end of front-line chemo for me, I'm on 100 mg of Zejula, and am HRD-. My CA-125 does seem to bounce around; 13,11, 11, 12, 13, 13, 11, 23, 13, 15, 9, 18 all since the end of chemo. So 18 is scary to me, although it was 23 once (no clue why) and went down. Maybe allergies? Maybe because I have an inflammatory arthritis but cannot take Humira for it anymore because of OC? As fast as I can come up with reasons why it's ok, I come up with ominous statements of "it's the end." I was even feeling pretty confident about this last blood draw, and now I feel like I jinxed it by not being anxious. It's so hard to explain to family or friends (they want to reassure) how much CA-125 can haunt us. . . .
Thanks for listening, you wonderful ladies!
