Hi everyone, I am new to this so if I am asking a question that has already been answered I apologize. I was diagnosed in April 2010 with Stage 2 ovc. My CA 125 Level was 1029. After a 6 months of taxol and a few other chemo drugs, and a year of Avastin, I have maintained a level of 15 to 17. My latest CA 125 came back 54. I am freaking out. However, I did have a cold the day I had the blood drawn. Could a cold make it rise that much? I am scheduled for a CT Scan on Friday. Thanks for listening - it helps just knowing someone out there understands the fear.
Thank you for your words of encouragement.
The scan did show a tumor on my pelvic. Good news is that there was only one and it is operable. Chemo will follow.
So, I begin the "Round 2" fight with Ovarian Cancer.
Thank you so much for your replies. Much appreciated.
