It is probably okay, but don't assume. Keep on top of it and make the docs do the same. Marie
When you are such with a respiratory illness, the lungs can produce the same protein a CA125 measures. There are so many variables that can affect the results. That's why most docs look at the trend vs a single reading. It's very possible that's what's happening here, but like Marie said, you don't want to take that for granted. Go for the test and try not to worry in the meantime. Easier said than done, I know. Please keep us updated and let us know how it turns out.
I had an elevated CA-125 after surgery to repair the hernia caused by my surgery. If you have any sort of inflammation in the abdomen, it will elevate the CA-125.
