I'm a mere bloke, trying desperately to support my long-suffering wife through this traumatic experience. Up to now she has had blood tests, a CT scan and now a biopsy. She has been told, very gently and well, that she has stage 3 ovarian cancer. Now to the nub of the question. An initial CA125 test some 5 weeks ago gave a result of >5000. This is when all hell let loose. A flurry of appointments & tests, just days apart. The latest CA125 reading, a couple of days ago, is 15,722. Mind boggling or what! I have read just about every word on this website but never seen any mention of figures like that. Please help a worried sick husband to make sense of this so that I am better prepared to support her all I can.
