Ca 125 after first chemo recidive: Hi, we just... - My Ovacome
Hi. It's very early days so please don't despair. I'm guessing Mum has 5 more treatments to go ? I'm not sure how soon after chemo started that my Ca125 came down but it was gradual rather than dramatic.
Falling leukocytes is a common side effect. Mine were about 1.5 at one point but it came back up. The Dr's will keep a close eye on Mum .
You are bound to be very worried about Mum but try to take it one day at a time . She will be so glad to have your love and support.
All the very best to you both.
It is early days. In my experience, during chemo treatment for a recurrence, my CA125 did go up. It eventually started falling quite quickly but I'm not sure at what point in treatment that was. Give it time. I'm sure that your mum is just happy that you are there supporting her. Wishing you both success with this treatment. Jackie x
