Feeling a bit frustrated and looking for some encouragement. I am still in frontline treatment after diagnosis in February of 3c/4. I had 4 chemo and then surgery. I have had five chemo post op with Avastin added in 3 treatments ago. My CA125 has been very slow to decrease but was gradually going down. Four weeks ago it was 83.5 but today it went up to 99. This is the first increase and I am freaking out a little. I had chemo #10 today (last one). Has anyone had a minor increase during treatment but still went on to normal range eventually?
How are you feeling today and when is your next Dr meeting? - if it helps, I logged a whole bunch of questions prior to my appointment so when I had the meeting, it felt like a better understanding of what the plan would be for me. Hope you are doing well today.
Thanks again for taking the time to encourage me 💕
I take comfort in that they have a plan so that is good. It is great that you are feeling well. I hope you are able to participate in what you want to do when you are felling good, just go for it! Do you also have access to an inperson support group / facility?
My current situation mirrors yours---I have my last booked chemo infusion tomorrow and my
Ca125 was slightly elevated at my blood test six days ago. This would my first CA125 increase since diagnosis March 2017. I did have a mild dental infection and had just started antibiotics the day of the blood test.
I hope you are doing well.
