After my wife's first chemo treatment her CA125 was 3000
After second - 4900
After third - 2500
After fourth - 800
After fifth - 130
After sixth - 105
She just had her seventh treatment and had a reaction to the Carboplatin after she received about 15% of the dose. She also gets Taxotere and did not have a problem with that. We will not know the CA125 results until after a blood test next week.
My question is why would there be just a small decrease in the CA125 numbers after the sixth treatment?
what are the normal levels that your ca125 may be reduced after chemo. my partners level is 189 and surgery takes place next week. Also did anyone have the frozen section and did it help in the surgery that took place.
