Hi,
What was the stage of her cancer at the beginning of chemotherapy? What was the histology?
The correct approach to epithelial ovarian cancer involves a complete staging laparotomy (cancer surgery including lymph node sampling), followed by chemotherapy (usually 6 to 8 cycles of a platinum based regimen for stage 2, 3, and 4 cancers), followed by close surveillance (including Ca125 levels).
I would advise her to undergo a PET-CT to document her current status.
It is impossible to predict the future trend of her Ca125 levels.
Wish her all the best!
