My sister has been battling cancer for almost 6 years and she has been on and off chemo pretty much this whole time. She has a tumor in her lower colon area and is bleeding when she uses the restroom. Can anyone tell me if this means she is "severe" now? I am so worried about her. Thank you and God bless.
That is a pretty high number for CA125. But what was her number before? Has it come down? Or is it going back up? CA125 can be elevated for a number of reasons but they do like to watch it to see if the chemo is helping. Just a single reading isn't enough to let you know how she's doing overall. She's been fighting this for quite a few years and things will go up and down. I hope she's on the downward swing in terms of her CA125.
I have a friend that's been fighting her OvCa for 11 years now and is still moving along quite well. Has to fight during the hard times and celebrates during the healthy times.
