Ascites and normal CA125

I am just wondering if anyone has ascites. I am 16 months post chemo and on Zejula and my CA125 is 10. I am waiting on an Ultrasound result. I am just curious if anyone else has had this happen to them.

  • Hi @Cecile21 Good to hear from you again.  I am also high grade serous stage 3.  I did have a pleural effusion when first diagnosed, not dissimilar to having ascites I was told at the time. The reverse applied to me though. I had a very high CA125 yet when the effusion was drained and they did the cytology on the fluid there was no evidence of cancer cells in it.  
    it would be interesting to know if any of our community have some experience along these lines to share. But I would suggest questions, particularly those of a more clinical nature, be directed to your cancer care team.  From the discussions here and others with peers in my community the whole subject of ascites seems quite confused at the best of times.  Your oncologist would be the one to confirm your situation is quite normal , if that's the case.
