Hi ... I have had raised levels of CA125 for the past 18 months, up and down between 38 and 77. I also have family history of OC (my mum who died at the age of 59). I've just seen the Gynae Consultant who has offered to take out my ovaries as a preventative measure. US scans haven't shown much, small ovarian cysts ( which have disappeared) and a fibroid. I don't have any symptoms except for tiredness, which is extreme and getting to the point I can't function properly. I've just read Amanda Jane's post from Sept last year - her situation being frightengly similar to mine. I am petrified of having the op, not because of the operation itself but because of the surgical menopause which will follow. I feel so ill and low at the moment I'm not sure I could cope with the menopause on top!! Your thoughts and advice would be appreciated ... Lxx
