After 3 yrs cancer free my CA 125 has been going up for the last couple of months and is now just over 35. I am having pains on both side of my stomach and bloating, etc. I will be getting another blood test in the next 2 days but just wanted to find out from anyone who had it return what their signs were.
God Bless

Ended up in surgery and 3 tumors removed and I am now doing another round of chemo. Dr. said I kill all but 1 or 2 cells which go dormant and then will activate again down the road and I will have to go through chemo again. CT scan only showed 1 tumor so now I will have regular PET scans going forward to monitor. Luckily my body talks to me and I push my Doctors hard to take action, which they agree is a good thing as I have to be my own advocate.
Wishing you wonderful results from round 3 and hopefully your last.

Wish my body talked to me, CA 125 is now 3131 but I feel fine!
Dr put me on Doxil which isn't bad at all. What did they put you on?

Ended up with 2nd surgery and chemo again - taxotere and charo and will be put on chemo pill after I finish chemo in Nov and I think Dr. said Doxil. Glad to hear the Doxil isn't bad. Good Luck

Just a quick update, found out I will be put on temozolomide after I finish chemo infusions. Has anyone been on this chemo pill?
Thanks
