I am 6 1/2 year GCT survivor, and recently was diagnosed with DCIS. I had my inhibins drawn with my preop bloodwork and underwent a mastectomy with immediate reconstruction. Day eight into my recovery, my Dr. called and told me that my inhibins were elevated. Inhibin A is 3.3 and Inhibin B is 43. I have also been experiencing some RUQ pain for which I had an u/s. The U/S showed that there in now fluid in my right lung, and I have to have a chest, abdominal, and pelvic CT scan on Tuesday, Should I be concerned? I'm just wondering whether this could mean that GCT is back, or maybe just a surgery complication. I am only 20 days out from the mastectomy and am I looking at cancer again before I can even heal??
I think you are wise to wonder about the connect of your labs and xrays with your surgery.
Infection, blood clots, fluid shifts can all makes labs look abnormal
I would wait until you are completely healed from your breast surgery before sorting this out.
like 3-6 months. remember - granulosa cell tumors are indolent, slow growing
please let us know what happens
