Sandra just completed 2nd cycle of Gem/Carbo and although we were told last week that the next CA test would not be until start of cycle 3 in 2 weeks, I have rang the secretary this morning to find the bloods dept did analyse the CA yesterday. Knowing it had dropped from 88 to 48 after the first cycle and we had a week delay of starting cycle2 due to being on antibiotics I now find it has risen slightly to 50. Bearing in mind this result is after the treatment of only one week of cycle2 and does not take into account of the completion of cycle2 yesterday its still disappointing news. We now hope we see a reduction before cycle 3 commences on 18 Apr. No need to panic just yet.
