My Mum aged 71 was diagnosed with Ovarian Cancer last September with a CA125 of 1440. She had 4 rounds of chemo Carboplatin up until Jan 2011. In February she had surgery to remove her womb, ovaries, tubes, omentum etc. then had 3 more rounds of Carboplatin. After the 7th round her CA125 was 29. She was told to wait 3 months and have the test repeated. Up until last week Mum had been really well, back to her normal self. But then she started getting pains in her stomach again so went to her GP. They ran blood tests and CA125 came back at 225, to say we are disappointed is an understatement.
Has anyone else had such a short time before CA125 started to rise?
What was the treatment 2nd time round?
Any help / advise would be much appreciated by Mum and myself.
