CT Scan this morning

So it’s off to get a CT Scan this morning, I wasn’t scheduled to see my Oncologist until the middle of April, but have been having some stomach aches and some random pain in my abdomen as well, so he ordered a CT Scan and wants to see me Thursday. I’m obviously a little worried...Has anyone had a recurrence within 6 months of their last treatment? Associated with Primary Peritoneal Cancer? Not that it matters, they treat it exactly the same as other ovarian cancers.

Thank All

Have a wonderful day!

Hi Jules,

Just wanted to comment that it sounds like your oncologist is really on the ball.

Hi Jules- I had stomach aches and pains and low pelvic pain after finishing first line chemo. I had CT scan and all it showed was a large amount of stool in bowel. lol Hope its nothing for you also. We really panic after each little ache or pain.

Hugs, Carol

Dear Jules, it sounds like you and your doc are right on top of things! Try not to worry, just listen to your body and insist on tests, etc. when things seem off. How's your CA125 these day

At my last check it was 12.2. Which is totally normal I know, but it had stayed at 10.1 from April of 2017 through January 2018.

I know I’m probably just being paranoid.

But writing it out to you all made me feel a bit better. I thank you for that. 🦋😊

Update about my CT Scan...

My Scan was 100% normal! So I’m going to try and move on from the what could happen phase, which is something I’ve been struggling with from day one. Wish me luck, I start therapy next week.

Thank you all so much for your well wishes and prayers.

Jules
