Hi Sandra,

Sorry to hear about the sad loss of your mum, and now you are going through a worrying time as well, it is a case of waiting for results, the waiting is hard but there is no pointing trying to guess what it might be... Sending you my best ishes love x G x


Sorry I meant best wishes xx


Dear Sandra

I'm so sorry to hear you lost your Mum last year. The most important thing now is that you've taken steps to find out what's causing the pain and your symptoms and hopefully the results will be reassuring. It shouldn't take more than 48 hours so hopefully you can contact your GP for an appointment to discuss the results. The CA125 is notoriously unreliable and can be raised for a number of reasons so even if it is outside the normal range it doesn't necessarily mean there's anything too serious.

In your situation even if the test results are normal I'd ask for an appointment with a gynaecologist and a scan to investigate things further.

Please let us know how you get on.

Best of luck. xxxx

Love Annie

Hi Sandra

So sorry about your mum and now you have a further worry. You have done the right thing going to your doctor and getting the CA125 test done. Just wait for the results (which I know only too well is very difficult) and take it one step at a time.

Best wishes
