Well since my gall bladder surgery I have been feeling great. I've been cutting back on what I eat and I'm starting to lose weight, I have been doing a lot of walking as I invested in a pedometer and it has really motivated me to get moving again. I've also entered a 10k race in July which I did last year and I'm hoping to improve on that time so I've started training for that using a run/walk strategy. I've also been out on my bike a couple of times as well and I even cycled to The Christie for my appointment. I must admit I got some odd looks with my blood form in one hand and my cycling helmet in the other.
I last went to the The Christie about 4 weeks ago, which was only a week after my surgery. Looking back I should have probably rearranged the appointment but to be honest with the distraction of surgery I forgot all about it. Of course my CA125 had risen from 34 to 67 but I was only a little bit worried and I had convinced myself that in 4 weeks time when I went back for a repeat test that it would have come back down as I have been feeling good.
I was very disappointed this morning when I found out that its gone up to 77. I'm waiting for someone to get back to me this afternoon but I expect it will mean another scan or going back in 6 weeks. This is the bit I hate the uncertainty, waiting for results and decisions to be made so I'm feeling a bit sad and a little bit nauseous.
