Topotecan Round 6  :-(

Aug 31, 2009 - 6 comments

Well, I was normal for 3 weeks .. or so I thought!  CA went up 8 points to 28 (with 21 being normal by my lab).  I know 8 isn't much, but I never have huge #'s .. so 8 points in 3 weeks is considerable for me.  I was extremely busy the week before the lab and am hoping that stress or some unknown other something, made the # jump and not the cancer.  I can only hope!  

Round 7 this week was to be my last as my onc honestly thought the # would go down and we would get a PET/CT at the end of the month.  If all was clear on the scan, I would get a chemo break.

I am thinking I will stay on schedule with the chemo until I get at least two in the normal range .. then have the scan.  So disappointing ................

I'm sorry...I hope it is only a fluke or virus or something....I hope it comes back down for you right away.

Easy for me to say, don't worry too much.  You know it's the trend of the CA 125 that is meaningful.  You look really good, I do so hope you get that break and are able to enjoy your autumn.
Love ya,

So sorry for the disappointment.  Hope it is a fluke and that it's all positive after this.

I hate to hear this but believe, like the others, that maybe it is something else causing it. We can pray for that and I will continue to keep you in my prayers. I hope you can take that chemo break soon!! Hugs, Colleen
